Iowa Corn has partnered with the Food Bank of Iowa to raise funds towards feeding and supporting Iowans. Iowa Corn will provide a matching grant up to $25,000 with a goal to raise at least $25,000 and then match those contributions equating to a goal of $50,000 for the Iowa Corn Team. This would provide over 200,000 meals of corn-fed meat, dairy, and eggs to Iowans across the state. We encourage anyone who wants to support those in need of meals as well as farmers to join the Iowa Corn Team and donate.  Food donations are always critical but even more so now during COVID-19.
