Iowa Local Food Day (ILFD), a statewide event that encourages schools to celebrate and serve at least two Iowa-grown foods in their meal programs. ILFD engages farmers and food service directors as partners, grows sales and viable markets for farmers, and expands local product options into more schools. An evaluation of the event finds that 33 survey respondents (52% response rate) had a positive experience participating in 2019 and will do so again. It is clear that local procurement requires support and partnership at the community and state level, and ILFD is key to learning and growing engagement across Iowa.
