Food Power Awards 2017
Detroit Food Policy Council's 3rd Annual Fundraiser and Awards honoring excellence in Detroit's food system
Thursday, October 19, 6pm
Detroit, MI 48207
The Detroit Food Policy Council would like to thank everyone who attended the 2017 Food Power Awards. Thank you to the sponsors, donors, volunteers and performers who made the Food Power Awards a success. The support of our community makes our work in research, policy, education, engagement and youth development possible.
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. Now in its third year, this year the award has a new name. The Food Power Awards – formerly the Golden Beet Awards – is our annual fundraiser; and proceeds from the event will fund DFPC’s work in education, engagement, research, policy and youth programming.
