Sustainable Food Places Award

The Sustainable Food Places Award is designed to recognise and celebrate the success of those places taking a joined up, holistic approach to food and that are achieving significant positive change on a range of key food issues.

The Award is open to any place - be it a city, large town, borough, county or district - which is a member of the Sustainable Food Places Network. 

The SFP programme team are currently completing a review and redesign of the SFP awards. We believe that the new awards approach and process will be much improved and better reflect the robust, flexible and trusted relationship approach you all take locally in your food partnership delivery.
