Local Food Specialists
A year ago, the Iowa Food Hub faced a difficult set of challenges, and we recognized it was time to reorganize our operations.
Yet, we remained sure of one thing -- our mission must continue -- connecting local school children to fresh, local food and supporting local farmers.
We relaunched the Iowa Food Hub in August and the results have surpassed our expectations:
• We’ve generated $58,300 of local food sales.
• 94% of those sales went to 10 schools and Luther College.
• We’ve purchased and delivered products from 19 local farms.
• We’ve helped restaurants and small town grocery stores access fresh, local options.
Thanks to many supporters, the Iowa Food Hub is making Farm to School happen in Northeast Iowa.
We’re excited to put the best food, grown right here, on our kids’ lunch trays, all while strengthening local farms and contributing to Northeast Iowa’s economy.
