Local event sparks community conversation of where our food is from

Charles City, Iowa – Sharing the process of how your food comes from the farm to your dinner plate is one of the goals of the Floyd County Farm Bureau.

‘Farm to Fork’ is Thursday, March 21st at Murray Farms near the Floyd County Fairgrounds.

One of the event’s organizers, Laura Cunningham says the dinner will help everyone understand how they all share the same plate.


The group is partnering with Hy-Vee in Charles City and the FFA chapter.  Members will be cooking tomahawk porkchops from pigs the chapter raised over the last year.  All food prepared is from Floyd County with Iowa beers and wines served.

Cunningham tells North Iowa News says collaboration with area groups are important to starting the conversation of where your food comes from.


As of Friday, there are 15 tickets remaining.  They are $40 and you can get them at Hy-Vee.  Any extra proceeds will help benefit other projects.
