Farm to School

Farm to School is a national movement to connecting schools with their local agricultural communities.  We believe local food has value for children, their families, our communities, the farmers and the environment.

Iowa Food Hub has received grant funding from the USDA Farm to School grant and the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture to research strategies to address the challenges of sourcing local food to schools.  IFH has weekly delivery routes throughout northeast Iowa and delivers product on a refrigerated truck.  Contact us at for our School Price List.

Upon request, IFH will coordinate visits to their members' farms for students or food service staff.  Point-of-purchase marketing materials and cafeteria signage are available.   Learn more about our Farm to School Program
