Iowa Corn Farmers Thank Essential Healthcare Workers

June 5, 2020

From one essential worker to another, Iowa Corn farmers provided a meal as a token of their appreciation to front-line healthcare professionals across the state of Iowa this week.  Iowa Corn partnered with Casey’s General Stores and Atlantic Coca-Cola Bottling Company to provide and personally deliver 1,500 Casey’s pizzas and 12-packs of Coke products to well over 100 hospitals in local Iowa communities.

“Iowa corn farmers say thank you, and we are stronger together in these difficult times,” said Iowa Corn Promotion Board (ICPB) President Roger Zylstra, a farmer from Sully, IA. “As the healthcare professionals are relentlessly keeping us and our families safe, Iowa’s corn farmers and livestock producers are working hard to continue to provide a safe, secure food system.”

There are over 4,000 products made from corn, many of which are included in Casey’s pizza and Atlantic Bottling’s Coke products.

“Casey’s is proud to partner with Iowa Corn farmers and Atlantic Bottling to say thanks to healthcare workers. Now more than ever, we all appreciate and applaud the courage of these workers who are serving our communities,” said Katie Petru, Director of Communications for Casey’s General Stores.

“Atlantic Coca-Cola Bottling Company is an Iowa company proud to partner with Iowa Corn and Casey’s supporting our medical professionals and emergency personnel in the local communities where we live, work, and play,” said John Otterbeck, Chief Marketing Officer for Atlantic Bottling Company. “We understand this is not an easy time for many, but Iowans are resilient and together we are stronger.”
