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.
