Give Before December 31st to Double Your Impact
Taste the Flavor of North Iowa
Over the past seven years, Healthy Harvest of North Iowa has been bringing community partners together, providing education and technical support to producers, increasing capacity of local farmers’ markets, and developing the local food system in North Iowa to create opportunities, but we can’t do this work alone. It’s because of numerous organizations, producers, and individuals just like YOU who believe in the importance of a local food system that we are seeing a growing number of restaurants who are promoting the use of local product, producers who are diversifying into vegetable and meat production, and customers who are asking where their food was raised.
Join us as we continue to create opportunities for North Iowans like Lora to pursue their dreams and strengthen our communities. Your support will allow the Healthy Harvest team to provide producer education and marketing, community project support, and regional system development.
Donate before the end of year and your impact can mean twice as much.
We have match donations that will match up to the first $5,000 donated before December 31st. This means your gift of $50 will mean $100 of support for Healthy Harvest of North Iowa projects.
