Farm to School Project in Iowa City

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL)-- Farm to School project will start this fall in Iowa City.  The Iowa Department of Agriculture has given the chapter $4000 to fund its first Farm to School project.

The chapter's kick-off project will be a "Farmer Fair." The Farmer Fair will feature local growers who will talk to students about where their food comes from and how their food is grown. The fair will also include a variety of interactive activities for students, and the chapter will work with teachers to develop lessons that explore topics addressed during the assembly.

Schools will be contacted in September about the opportunity to host a Farmer Fair.
