Field to Family works to connect citizens in the food system, educate the public, and celebrate the local sustainable food economy.
Join us this September for the 2014 Field to Family Festival!
What happens when you take freshly picked homegrown produce, cultivated by local farmers & put it in the hands of expertly trained renowned area chefs? Why the 13th Annual Field to Family Festival of course!
The festival supports the work of Field to Family’s programs: Farm to School & Local Food Finder. Farm to School teaches students about food, agriculture and nutrition, connects schools with local farmers, and supports the local food economy. Local Food Finder is an online guide to connect consumers with local farmers and their products. All proceeds from the festival go directly towards these programs.
This year’s festival offers supporters the opportunity to taste local gourmet treats from top downtown Iowa City restaurants, meet local farmers, tour sustainable farms and gardens by bike, feast on this year’s harvest at a celebratory meal and support school gardens at the Iowa City Farmer’s Market Kid’s Day School Garden Booth!
