Sustainable Food Cities Award

The Sustainable Food Cities 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, town, borough, county or district - which is a member of the Sustainable Food Cities Network. Read the criteria, conditions and application process for the award. If you want to discuss applying, please contact Tom Andrews -

See the current Sustainable Food Cities Award winners and view their applications. 

The structure of the award is based around six key food issues, so if you are looking for inspiration on what you might do as you work towards the award, check out the key issues section.

We are no longer accepting applications for this round but if you are hoping to apply for the next round, the process will start in September 2017. Please get in touch with Alizee Marceau to express your interest.
