Call for Nominations: EatingWell's 2017 American Food Heroes

By: Jessie Price  |  Monday, February 27, 2017

EatingWell is launching an annual list of our top heroes: people who are making food in America better right now. We need your help to make this work! We want to know who you think deserves to be added to our list.
Why is EatingWell doing this? We're committed to shining a light on the most important food, sustainability and nutrition issues of the day. We help readers understand where their food comes from and its impact on the environment, family, health and community. Our list will recognize and celebrate the great work and change happening now.
We want to hear from you! Tell us who you think is an American food hero. We will judge all submissions, paying particular attention to accomplishments in the last year. The winners will be announced and profiled in the September/October issue of EatingWell (on sale August 22).
Submissions should include up to 250 words on what makes your nominee a visionary and leader in the world of good food. If you have a photo and contact information for the nominee, please include that as well. Send your submission to by Friday, March 10, 2017.
