The Buy Fresh Buy Local Movement
Buy Fresh Buy Local (BFBL) chapters are popping up in every community across the USA. There are several BFBL chapters in Iowa including one here in northeast Iowa.
BFBL Chapter Affiliates are connecting consumers in communities throughout the country to the freshest, most delicious locally grown and locally produced foods available. Through outreach education, fun events, festivals, farmers markets and by supporting local food system revitalization our chapter members and chapter affiliates are hard at work expanding the availability and quality of locally grown and produced foods.
Help make a difference with us! Take the “Buy Local Challenge” by pledging to spend just $10 per week or more on local foods and make a difference in your community.
Keep up to date with Buy Fresh, Buy Local Iowa as we connect Farmers and Consumers and promote fresh delicious foods. For more information about our local chapter, contact Teresa Wiemerslage at 563-568-6345.
The Northeast Iowa Food & Farm (NIFF) Coalition and the Food & Fitness Initiative are working together to create community environments that support access to fresh, locally grown, healthy, affordable food and safe environments for physical activity and play.
