Welcome!

Join us in celebrating food, family and farming.

You’re invited to explore how food is grown around the state and meet the farmers who make it happen; 24/7, 365 days a year. At the Iowa Food & Family Project, we’re all about celebrating farm families, uniting rural and urban communities and giving you the information and experiences you need to make informed food choices.

Our initiative involves a collaborative network of nearly 35 food, farming and healthy living organizations who are proud of Iowa’s homegrown foods and hometown values. We’re funded by the soybean, pork, beef, egg, corn, turkey and dairy checkoffs, as well as non-checkoff resources, and are a presenting sponsor of Live Healthy Iowa.
