The Awards are an opportunity to recognise, reward and publicise some of the hundreds of outstanding community projects that Local Food has funded since the programme opened in 2008.
All of our projects have made a positive and lasting impact in the communities in which they are based, helping local people in all manner of different ways to access, grow, prepare and understand the benefits of fresh, healthy food.
We are extremely proud of the work that has been made possible across the whole of England, and as our programme comes to an end, we are offering all our projects the chance to attract some well-deserved additional recognition.
We are looking for the most outstanding projects across 4 categories, in which awards will be made at a celebratory event in Manchester in November 2013. Award winners will each receive a trophy, and the opportunity for some dedicated national publicity.
The categories are:
All projects are invited to enter one or more of the above categories – with the caveat that only those projects which received a Small Grant from Local Food will be considered for the Small Grants Award.
If you would like to enter your project for the Awards, please click on the following link, where you will be able to access all the Entry Forms, as well as Guidance Notes.
In the interests of saving paper, we have decided to use simple electronic forms, but if you would prefer to receive paper copies, please contact Maria Marsden on 01636 670047 or email@example.com.
Please complete and return your entry by the deadline of 5pm on Monday 3rd June. Entries will be shortlisted by an internal judging panel at the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts, which manages Local Food. Projects will be informed of the result over the summer, and those that are shortlisted will be informed as to the next stage of the process, which will involve judging by an external panel. All shortlisted projects will be invited to the celebratory event in November, when the winner in each category will be announced.
