What we are looking for?

We want to celebrate how a food/drink ventures can do good for people, communities or the planet. 

We are keen to hear about organisations and food enterprises working with a wide range of people and tackling a wide range of challenges, from food surplus, to mental health issues, to training and employment for people facing a tougher time than most of us, and beyond.

To give you a better idea of what we want to celebrate, here are the first ten Urban Food Heroes chosen.
