The 2014 Field to Family Festival was a great success!

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 offered 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!

Special thanks to all those who attended our events & supported local food! Thank you also to the sponsors of the 2014 Field to Family Festival: New Pioneer Food Co-op, Edible Iowa River Valley Magazine, Little Village, Share Restaurant, Hy-Vee, University of Iowa Community Credit Union, Blank & McCune, Hills Bank & Trust, Iowa Valley RC&D, & Practical Farmers of Iowa.
