Nominations Needed for Freshy Award; Registration Open for CalFresh Forum

Each year, California Food Policy Advocates (CFPA) recognizes "Freshy Award" winners in acknowledgment of individual Californians, as well as organizations, from across the state who have worked diligently in the last year to improve CalFresh. The winners will be announced and recognized at the annual CalFresh Forum in October.

CFPA is accepting nominations for the 2015 Freshy Awards through this Friday, August 14th. The Freshy Award categories were established to encourage nominations across a number of CalFresh oriented professions, including advocates, administrators, elected officials, and more. We are collecting information about each nominee in order to develop a voting ballot that will be distributed in early August.

The Freshy Awards categories include:

  • Administrator of the Year
  • Grassroots Mobilizer of the Year
  • Innovative Outreach Leader of the Year
  • Elected Official or Capitol Staffer of the Year
