Local Foods Resources - Dubuque County


About The Local Foods Program:

Every one of us participates in the food system - from consumers to cooks, producers to processors, wholesalers to waste management professionals. At Dubuque County Extension, we work together to build a resilient and sustainable food shed in the tri-state area, providing education, and facilitating partnerships to expand opprotunity for health and resilience in the food system.
