Iowa Local Food Day

October 11

What will you be eating October 11, 2018? Help celebrate Iowa’s local foods in your school through a grant opportunity, IDALS is creating an “Iowa Local Food Day” state wide celebration. This event will bring together all sectors of Farm to School. Unifying the state in a local food project will:

  • Aid food service directors in making local procurements
  • Engage more growers in growing and selling produce in schools
  • Allow Farm to School activities to expand beyond fruits and vegetables
  • Help growers ramp up sales by working with Summer Food Service Programs
  • Raise awareness of farm to school across the state

AND…Let kids experience the goodness of Iowa foods
