A new poll found that Iowans overwhelmingly oppose waivers given by EPA to oil refiners allowing them to ignore their obligations to blend renewable fuels like ethanol under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). The poll also found Iowa voters strongly support the RFS and use of renewable fuels.

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. The Food Bank of Iowa is proud to serve hungry Iowans across 55 counties in our state.
