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.
Each year, CFPA’s CalFresh Forum brings together hundreds of key stakeholders from across the state to identify opportunities and discuss strategies to improve the reach and impact of CalFresh. This year the CalFresh Forum will take place on October 1, 2015 in Sacramento, CA.
