The Iowa Food & Family Project celebrates the continuous improvement of Iowa’s farm families and their dedication to providing wholesome food for everyone. The project encourages Iowans to become better acquainted with the dedicated farmers who grow their food through activities throughout the year including the Iowa State Fair, farmers’ markets, farm tours and more. The goal of this outreach is to help consumers become more knowledgeable and trusting in agriculture processes.

IFFP and its dedicated partners proudly serve as presenting sponsor of the Iowa Games and a supporter of Live Healthy Iowa. The Iowa Food & Family Project, established in 2011 is funded by the soybean, pork, beef, egg, corn, turkey and dairy checkoffs, as well as non-checkoff resources.

Have a question about food or agriculture? We can get it answered by a local farmer or dietitian. Looking for dinner ideas? Flip through our recipe box and e-cookbook. Not sure what cut of meat makes the best pot roast? We’ve got you covered. We recommend bottom round, rump or shoulder roast, by the way! Let’s dig in!

Our Partners

We learned at a pretty young age that things are easier when you work together…and more fun, too! The Iowa Food & Family Project is proud to be made up of a variety of agricultural organizations, non-profit groups, restaurants, grocery stores and more. Our common goal is to connect you with the Iowa farmers who grow crops and livestock that help feed people around the world! We’re also proud to be presenting sponsor of Live Healthy Iowa because we know healthy activities start with healthy food and healthy food starts on the farm.

Here’s a roundup of project partners who make up our diverse family.
