Abstract

Iowa college interns worked with the UNI Local Food Project, food buyers, and farmers to improve local food purchasing processes.

Key Question

How can we improve the marketing of local food products?

Findings

We have documented that we have expanded local markets for locally grown agricultural products significantly by organizing around one metro area, by working with all players in the food system, and by articulating the multiple benefits of having farmers near us who grow the food we eat.
