Iowa's Plan For Eating Local
Iowa's agriculture may feed the world, but only about 14 percent of the food Iowans eat is produced here in the state. Iowa State University's Center for Sustainable Agriculture recently released a report outlining concrete, feasible ways to expand the local food economy in the state. The report was requested by the state legislature last year. In conjunction with Harvest Public Media, Iowa Public Radio's Kathleen Masterson has this story on the recommendations for building a stronger local food network.
