Good Food Awards Dinner

Hudson's on the Bend

3509 Ranch Road 620N

Austin, TX 78734


The Good Food Awards were created as a non profit project to redefine “good food” to include taste, authenticity and responsible production. In its first year, Alice Waters presented 64 winners from 26 states with the honor, including Austin's own Stephanie McClenny of Confituras. The dinner will showcase Confituras and other Good Food Award winners from the South, with proceeds  benefiting fire relief efforts on Texas's sustainable farms and growth of the Good Food Awards in the South.
