The FMI Foundation created the Gold Plate Award in 2013 to highlight the outstanding programs implemented by the retail food industry to encourage family meals. Examples include healthy family meals, quick and easy family meals and recipes, cooking with kids, themed dinners, breakfast with the family, MyPlate meals, and much more. The award recognizes outstanding programs that food retailers and suppliers have implemented, to encourage families to share more meals, together at home, more often.
After a great month of family meals, we were able to host the 2023 Gold Plate Awards ceremony in conjunction with the in-person Health & Well-being Council meeting at FMI Headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. David Fikes, executive director of the FMI Foundation, and Kelli Windsor, senior director of digital communications, co-hosted the Gold Plate Awards ceremony on Tuesday, November 28th.
Thank you to all Gold Plate Award recipients (winners and honorable mentions) and all submissions for this year's awards program. We hope your company will consider a family meals month activation or program in the year to come.
