Each year at the annual assembly, the Canadian Association for Food Studies presents two awards for excellence in the field of food studies.
Launched in 2011, the Student Paper award was created to recognize scholarly excellence and encourage participation by undergraduate and graduate students. The award includes a $200 prize, a one-year CAFS membership, complimentary conference registration, and a banquet ticket for the CAFS conference.
The second award is comprised of three different categories that are presented in a three-year cycle. The categories are:
- Award for Distinguished Lifetime Achievement in Food Studies
- Research Award for Excellence in Food Studies
- Award for Excellence in Public Service
Please see our list of past award winners.
