Join us in celebrating food, family and farming.
The Iowa Food & Family Project encourages Iowans to become more confident and trusting in agriculture and food production through community activities, educational programs and information sharing.
We believe in celebrating Iowa’s farm families and giving Iowans the information and experiences they need to make informed decisions about their food choices. We bring together agricultural organizations, restaurants, health experts, bloggers, food retailers and farm families to lead a collaborative conversation on food, farming and healthy living.
The Iowa Food & Family Project is funded by the soybean, pork, beef, egg, corn, turkey and dairy checkoffs, as well as non-checkoff resources. We are a proud presenting sponsor of Live Healthy Iowa.
