Our programme manager Leon Ballin says;
"We are delighted to make 22 awards in 2023, which reflects a growing recognition of the Sustainable Food Places (SFP ) awards as a national benchmark of good practice amongst communities, local authorities, and food partnerships. This brings the total of current SFP Award holders in the UK to 50 (the list of Award holders is available here).
Bronze Awards are a recognition of collaborative best practice across the entire food system, Silver Awards recognise embeddedness and innovation, and the beginnings of whole place. All SFP awards demonstrate how a food partnership is the essential piece of sustainable food infrastructure in a place – whether it be a borough, county, city or district. It is also testament to the food partnership coordinator, team and stakeholders as showing this impact requires considerable skill, knowledge and capacity.
