Food Hubs are an opportunity to help you celebrate Farm to School Month and Iowa Local Food Day!
Food Hubs are a great way to find local products. They specialize in only local foods.
After the inaugural Iowa Local Food Day in 2018, we learned that:
- 80% of the schools participating in the Iowa Local Food Day used
a food hub to obtain some product
- 60% of the schools used a food hub for the first time
- Some schools used multiple food hubs to source product
Food hubs delivering at least one specialty crop to schools will be paid a
delivery stipend, keeping costs low!
Food hubs are ready to help schools with their local food goals.
