Each year, CFPA recognizes "Freshy Award" winners in acknowledgment of individual Californians, as well as organizations, from across the state that have worked diligently in the last year to improve CalFresh. The winners are announced and recognized at the annual CalFresh Forum.
CFPA is now accepting nominations for the 2018 Freshy Awards! 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 January 2018.
Freshy Award categories: * Administrator of the Year * Outreach Leader of the Year * Grassroots Mobilizer of the Year * Elected Official or Capitol Staffer of the Year
In addition, CFPA recognizes the small, medium and large counties with the highest, and most improved, Program Access Index (PAI).
The Freshy Award nomination process will close on January 12, 2018 at 6pm.
California Food Policy Advocates and the California Department of Social Services would very much like for you to join us at the 2018 CalFresh Forum on March 14, 2018 in Sacramento, CA!
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. The 2018 CalFresh Forum will focus on upcoming opportunities to improve how CalFresh serves vulnerable populations as we look to the future and continue to work toward improving access and participation across the state. This year's program will feature workshops and panels led by speakers with varied and extensive policy and programmatic expertise.
Registration is $50 per person and includes lunch and light afternoon refreshments.
