We are a small, private school in north central Iowa. We have never taken part in any farm to school activities in the past. This year we received a grant from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship made possible through the CARES act. This allowed us to buy local, farm fresh products. It makes perfect sense when about 90% of Iowa land is devoted to agriculture! Carrots, potatoes, radishes, lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and yogurt were some of the produce served this year. As you can see in the photo, it made a beautiful plate of food.
