The event is the annual highlight for the plant based raw foods movement. With a mission to “invite everyone to add more raw, organic plant food to their diet to increase health, decrease their eco footprint, and raise their spirits,” these ‘Rawscars’ as the awards are affectionately known, bring much deserved attention to the exciting personalities, companies and products in this billion dollar segment of the food industry. The event will feature a sit down dinner orchestrated and designed by noted raw chef Jillian Love who will be training the Hyatt’s staff in raw preparation specifically for this event.
