  • There’s a movement underway in Northeast Iowa. We are on the ground floor to improve the policies, practices, and systems that determine how food arrives on our tables and how our communities can grow opportunities for physical activity for all.  We want to share with you our vision for NE Iowa and what’s on the horizon to make the vision a reality.
