2017 Specialty Crop Block Grant

 

Southern Iowa Local Foods Initiative was awarded the SCBG to increase millennial purchases of specialty crops at farmers' markets in southern Iowa.

2015 FMPP Grant

 

Southern Iowa Local Foods Initiative was awarded the 2015 federal Farmers’ Market Promotion Program grant for its Growing Farmers and Farmers’ Markets Project. The purpose of this project is to grow and promote six farmers’ markets in the seven-county Southern Iowa RC&D region through direct producer-to-consumer opportunities.

 

The University of Iowa’s film department produced a promotional local foods video for this project (check it out below) which has been distributed to 14 stakeholders in seven counties to be uploaded to the websites/Facebook pages of farmers, tourism entities and nonprofit entities. Students will also design a regional farmers’ market brochures that will include all of the markets in the Southern Iowa RC&D region.
