Food Triangles: The Inaugural INDY Food Awards 

During the last thirty years, the INDY has honored hundreds of remarkable people. Since 1983, the year of the newspaper's inception, our Citizen Awards have acknowledged those working to make the Triangle a more just, equitable place to live and work. And since 1990, the Indies Arts Awards have celebrated those making our communities vibrant and engaging through music and dance, film and painting, organization and inspiration.

At last, we are thrilled to launch the third phase of our annual awards, the INDY's Food Triangles. Each year, we will honor three individuals or institutions whose contributions have expanded or transformed our regional food infrastructure. Though we will certainly honor chefs and artisans, it is not our intent to name the area's best chef or buzziest trend; instead, as with our other honors, we will focus on the people whose work with food and community has made the Triangle a more vibrant, equitable, and engaging place to be and to eat. The inaugural Food Triangle winners—April McGreger of Farmer's Daughter, Vansana and Vanvisa Nolintha of Bida Manda, and Katherine Gill of The Hub Farm—certainly fit this mold.
