Abstract

This 18-page report offers a two-year look at the statewide impact of the local foods sector on Iowa's economy, based on an evaluation of the efforts of the Regional Food Systems Working Group (RFSWG). The evaluation measured four indicators of economic change: local food sales by farmers, local food purchases by grocery stores, restaurants and institutions, job creation and funds leveraged to support development of regional food systems. Local food coordinators collected data in 2012 and 2013.
