Iowa Food Systems Team Helps Communities with Food-Based Projects

Iowa State University’s Food Systems Team helps communities and organizations with participant-led development projects based on community food, Farm to School, and food access. A feature on the Team’s work notes that they use a three-year approach to developing and designing community, local, and regional food systems. The process begins with assessing conditions and continues through developing and implementing projects. In particular, the team is involved with coalition development, community food system assessment, and technical assistance.
