A popular food box program launched by the Iowa Food Hub in metro areas has been expanded to rural communities with solid success. Midway through the 10-week pilot effort, the subscription-based food box delivery program is getting rave reviews from its participants. Elkader accounts for the largest enrollment of the pilot sites with 13 subscriptions. I’m one of them, and I have been impressed with the quality and variety of produce in my food box.
