Permalink Iowa Expands Farm to School Program

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship announced that it has received a $100,000 Farm to School Support Services Grant from the USDA Food and Nutrition Service to host an Iowa Local Food Day on October 11, 2018, as part of National Farm to School month. Schools are invited to join in the celebration by serving local foods. With the grant funding, the Department is working on several other projects, as well: build a support network for schools interested in using local foods; aid food service directors in local procurement; work with growers interested in selling produce to schools; partner with Summer Food Service Programs as a starting point for farmers to work with schools; and allow Farm to School activities to expand beyond fruits and vegetables. The Department is also helping to host the 2018 Iowa Farm to School Conference June 29, 2018.
