The Urban Food Awards were launched in 2015 to celebrate the people behind good food in London and since then have celebrated dozens of great food businesses and people, serving up Londoners healthy, sustainable and delicious food with purpose.

London Growth hub is sponsoring this year’s ‘Superfood Social Enterprise’ award category, the winner receive up to £5,000 of free business support.

This year there is a special focus on ‘Women in Food’ which will recognise a number of women who are using food for good within their communities or helping to improve food in London. The nominees could be working alone or as part of a team in food education, community food, good food enterprise, urban food growing, or good food campaigning or policy.

The awards are run in partnership with London Food Link and The Mayor of London and will help to raise the profile of good food enterprises and projects in London.

Finalists will be chosen by a judging panel of experts chaired by Claire Pritchard, chair of the London Food Board . Winners will be announced at an invitation-only awards ceremony in March, and featured in the Jellied Eel mag and online.
