Blog for Iowa: Iowa's Local Food Systems: A Place to Grow Report Shows Iowa Can Benefit if Iowans Buy Locally

Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa
Iowans can boost their economy by producing more food to sell locally, a new report shows. "Iowa's leaders need to implement policies that encourage profitable local food systems," said Teresa Galluzzo, co-author of the report and a research associate for the nonpartisan Iowa Policy Project. "Research shows the state's economy would benefit." Galluzzo and Laura Krouse, a Cornell College biology instructor, examined the potential for local food systems in Iowa and their impacts, and how policy makers could encourage this developing industry.
