Iowa food producers have become an integral part of the Table to Table recovery network and a valuable resource for fresh foods. T2T now partners with 10+ local producers who expand our offerings to include fresh produce, Old Capitol tofu, Kalona Supernatural organic milk, Oasis hummus, DeLuxe Cakes and Pastries and more.
After their weekly retail deliveries in Johnson County, Hansen’s Dairy, based out of Hudson, Iowa, delivers milk from their family farm directly to T2T. Their fresh-off-the-farm dairy products are highly desirable for recipient agencies.
Echollective Farm, a local organic vegetable farm, not only invites T2T volunteers to glean produce from their fields, but also delivers extra produce directly to T2T. “In 2021, Echollective Farm donated nearly twenty thousand pounds of produce to local nonprofits, and we truly could not have done this without the support of Table to Table…Giving us one accessible, easy place to donate produce is truly invaluable,” writes Molly Schintler, farmer at Echollective. “Without Table to Table, our food would reach far fewer members of our community.”
