Cork Food Policy Council is very pleased to announce the 2020 Cork Food Policy Council Award Scheme.
The CFPC believe there are many people who go that extra mile when it comes to sustainable food practices, who don’t get the recognition they deserve. This awards program is designed to recognise those people, acknowledge their good work and encourage others to follow suit.
Applicants, who must be Cork-based, are invited from each of the following three categories:
1 Private Business – food retail, producer, restaurant, food enterprise; etc.
2 Not for Profit – Community garden, allotment, charitable organisation; etc.
3 Educational Institution – Primary, secondary or third level institute, skills & training providers; etc.
Applicants are being asked to illustrate their commitment to each of the CFPC’s five core values:
1. Health and wellbeing for all
2. A thriving local economy
3. Resilient, food-friendly communities
4. Lifelong learning & skills
5. A reduced environmental footprint
Those shortlisted for a prize will be visited by a judging panel
Deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday April 10th 2020
An award ceremony will be hosted by the Lord Mayor of Cork City Cllr. John Sheehan at the Council Chamber Room, Cork City Hall on Thursday May 7th 2020 at 6.30pm. Successful applicants will be awarded the 2020 CFPC Certificate of Recognition along with a cash prize of €500 kindly donated by SuperValu Ireland.
