About The Local Foods Program:
The food system is a diverse and complex system that everyone of us participates in - From consumers to cooks, producers to processors, wholesalers to waste management professionals, each person has a connection to the food system. At Dubuque County Extension, we work in partnership with local and regional allies to develop programs and provide resources to enhance the visability and viability of local food systems in eastern Iowa.
The Dubuque Local Foods e-newsletter is delivered monthy, keeping you up to date on upcoming cooking classes, farmer trainings & workshops, webinars, agrotourism events and more! Stay connected and sign up today!
Dubuque Extension works in collaboration with the Iowa Regional Food Systems Working Group to increase understanding of the impacts of local food and farming on the economy, environment, and health of Iowans.
