Local Foods Resources


About our Program:

ISU Extension and Outreach’s mission is to help Iowans make informed decisions by applying relevant, needs‐driven resources, to create significant impact in our state.

Food systems are at the core of each of ISU’s four signature issues: 

  • Food and the environment: supporting a safe, sustainable and affordable food supply (diversified farms, sustainable food production).
  • Health and well-being: helping Iowa become the healthiest state in the nation (nutrition education, reconnecting children with food, edible landscapes).
  • Economic development: growing businesses and strengthening communities (creating jobs, creating opportunities for beginning farmers, reconnecting consumers with producers).
  • K12 youth outreach: preparing our young people for the future (farm to school, engaging youth).
