Farm to Institution

Every day, millions across the nation dine outside their homes, whether at schools, hospitals, restaurants, or by purchasing from grocery and convenience stores (Source USDA). These establishments serve as vital avenues for local producers to thrive; fostering connections with communities and promoting health. 

Our team facilitates these connections, linking farmers with institutional buyers such as schools and restaurants. Each January and July, we host networking events to bolster relationships between local food producers and buyers. Proudly part of Iowa's Food Hub network, we operate as a node for the Decorah based Hub, contributing to the statewide effort to enhance sales opportunities for local producers.
