Good News Stories: Feed Leeds Celebration

Shared as part of our #GoodFoodStories series. Annual Feed Leeds Celebration took place on Monday 26 Feb at Meanwood Valley Urban Farm. And at the event, we heard from amazing food growing projects from all across Leeds and we shared a delicious and nutritious meal! We also announced the winners of the Feeds Leeds Food Growing Awards. People from across Leeds were invited to nominate their favourite local food growing champions and winners were announced at the celebratory event. We would like to thank all those who voted, everyone who has contributed to growing and the Feed Leeds Network and of course, we’d like to congratulate the winners. It is always so nice to recognise the people who make a difference in our community.

And the awards went to, (drumroll)…
