Local Foods Connection is a non-profit organization operating in Iowa City, Iowa. We purchase produce, meat and other products from small family farmers and donate these goods to low-income families in southeast Iowa. You can learn more about us at:


We wish everyone a happy new year! Local Foods Connection (LFC) recently finished a terrific giftwrapping fundraiser at Prairie Table in Iowa City. Many a volunteer staffed the table, and wrapped presents for a wide array of holiday shoppers. The project generated over $550 and gave us great exposure to a new audience. Thanks Ron Gleitman, owner of Prairie Table (PT); the staff at PT for helping out when needed; and the dozens of LFC volunteers who gave up some of their holiday free-time to help!
