As you may know, Local Foods Connection has a dual mission: to put high-quality, fresh food into the hands of people who cannot afford it and to champion small family farmers who use environmentally-friendly farming methods. LFC is committed to the eaters and farmers of Iowa and to the land itself.

In light of our interest in the people and foods that make Iowa great, we were intrigued by the Iowa Arts Council’s Iowa Place-Based Foods project and we thought you might be, too.

Central to the Iowa Place-Based Foods project is an emphasis on foods that have a story: the local foods we talk about, tell tales about, and love. The project is the result of a two year Iowa survey of Iowans about uniquely Iowan foods, funded by the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture.

Read about the results and check to see if your favorite Iowa foods made the cut on the Iowa Place-Based Foods project web site. You can also download the 35 page full report, “Taste of Place: Place-based Foods in Iowa,” on their site.
