ARLINGTON, Va. — The FMI Foundation has announced the recipients of its 2022 Gold Plate Awards.

The winners were named last month during a livestreamed Gold Plate Awards Celebration, cohosted by FMI Foundation executive director David Fikes and FMI – The Food Industry Association president and chief executive officer Leslie Sarasin.

The Gold Plate Awards highlight outstanding family meal programs implemented by the food industry and community ­organizations.

In addition to awarding a commemorative plate, the FMI Foundation paid special attention to programs that connect family meals and mental health benefits by awarding a Blue Ribbon.

“Our partner organizations make the Family Meals Movement possible,” said Fikes. “This year we are showcasing the people who make food retail, supplier and community family meals programs stand out. Our live Gold Plate Awards ceremony is our way of saying thank you to all those who champion the importance of family meals.”

Sarasin said that “the recipients of the 2022 Gold Plate Awards represent a collective industry effort to help families stay strong with family meals.

“I’m particularly proud of the programs that went the extra mile to connect the importance of family meals, however one defines family, to mental health. Through creative messages, in-store promotion and innovative employee engagement, the passion for the Family Meals Movement is just one way our industry stands out,” she added.
