Food Hubs

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.
