A working group that united a multitude of stakeholders with broad interests in food and health issues was formed to enhance all elements of Iowa's food system.
What are the impact and value of the establishment of a statewide network focused on cultivating an Iowa-based food system that eliminates hunger, increases access to nutritious food and advances the health of Iowans?
The impact and value of this new community of practice was evaluated by growth in partners, number of gatherings, establishment of a leadership team, completion of a comprehensive food access and health assessment, leveraged funding and resources and the responses from a FAHWG partner survey.
