Cork Food Policy Council is very pleased to announce the 2019 Cork Food Policy Council Award Scheme.

1Private Business – food retail, producer, restaurant, food enterprise; etc.
2Not for Profit – Community garden, allotment, charitable organisation; etc.
3Educational Institution – third level institute, skills & trainign providers; etc.
4Schools – Primary or Secondary

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 January 30th 2019
An award ceremony will be hosted by the Lord Mayor of Cork City Cllr. Mike Finn at St Peter’s, North Main Street on Tuesday February 12th 2019 at 6.00pm.
