Food Power Awards

DFPC's 3rd Annual Awards and Fundraiser

Each year the Detroit Food Policy Council recognizes those in our community who work in the local food system, and exemplify the values of Justice, Respect, Integrity, Inclusion and Transparency that guide our work. This year the award has a new name. The Food Power Awards will be held Thursday, October 19, 2017. 

The Good Food Awards is our annual fundraiser, and proceeds from the event will fund DFPC’s work in education, engagement, research, policy and youth programming. The evening will include a strolling dinner, award ceremony, silent auction and live music. By purchasing a ticket for the Food Power Awards you will also receive a one year membership to the Friends of the Detroit Food Policy Council.   

Award will be given in the categories of Individual, Youth, Business, Nonprofit Organization, and Community Choice. Voting will be open on our website September 5 - September 25.

This year we are introducing a new category, the Community Choice Award. Voters will be able to submit their own choice for the winner of this category, and the finalist with the most votes will be the winner. The award winners for the Individual, Youth, Business and Nonprofit Organization categories will be announced on our website before the awards; and the winner of the Community Choice category will be announced at the Food Power Awards ceremony on October 19.  

Tickets are $50, and $90 for two tickets., tickets on sale through Thursday, October 17.
