Feeding the world one meal at a time

By Jennifer Carrico

More than 255,000 soy-based meals were packaged at the opening day of the Iowa State Fair with the help of the Iowa Soybean Association and the Iowa Food & Family Project.

These organizations, along with GROWMARK, organized and funded the Meals from the Heartland event, along with the help of the Iowa State Fair and state fair goers.

“I think it is a tremendous, tremendous statement that we are the breadbasket of the world here in Iowa and we are helping those folks less fortunate than us,” said Iowa State Fair General Manager Gary Slater.

The event, which was possible with the help of 1,500 volunteers, included members of agricultural organizations, farmers and even Iowa Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds.

ISA Director of Communications and External Relations Aaron Putze said this event was one of many that focus on the long-term initiative of the ISA and its members to engage consumers about what farmers do to feed the world.

“Tell me and I’ll forget, but show me and I’ll remember,” Putze said. “That is what Iowa’s farmers want to do—to show consumers what it will take to produce 70 percent more food by the year 2050 to feed 9 billion people.”
