Iowa State University supports an intern program called Rising Stars. These ISU students are placed in various communities around the state of Iowa and apply the skills they've learned in school to real-life. We are happy to announce that we will have three interns working in the area to help promote Local Foods. They will help with marketing local food farms, markets and events, and will also be involved in providing outreach.
Look for the Rising Stars this summer at area farmers markets, county fairs, food pantries and community events. They will be involved in a variety of educational activities, local food tastings, and cooking demos.
