Live Healthy Iowa

Your wellness journey starts with healthy food.

We're proud to sponsor Live Healthy Iowa because we know healthy activities start with healthy food, and healthy food starts on the farm. Through our partnership, we're helping Iowans in rural and urban communities learn how Iowa-grown and -raised food can fuel their wellness journey.

Download our Live Healthy Iowa A to Z Wellness Guide for tips and tools to help you live an active, mindful lifestyle and inspire you to fill your plate with nutritious Iowa-grown and -raised ingredients.

About Live Healthy Iowa

As part of the Iowa Sports Foundation, Live Healthy Iowa began in 2002 as a friendly, team competition encouraging Iowans to “Lighten Up” by adopting more physically active lifestyles and healthy choices.

Over the past 17 years, Live Healthy Iowa challenge participants have accumulated more than 65 million miles of physical activity. The accumulated distance is equivalent to just over 213,000 trips across Iowa.
