INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Grown celebrated their upcoming five year anniversary Tuesday with program members, partners and legislators at the Statehouse.
During the celebration the Indiana Grown team highlighted their major accomplishments and outlined key priorities for the year ahead.
Attendees gathered to hear from Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch, who has been a longstanding supporter of Indiana Grown, along with ISDA Director Bruce Kettler and Indiana Grown Director Heather Tallman.
The program has added hundreds of farmers, growers, makers and producers to their member directory and have successfully partnered with retail stores like Kroger, Needlers and Target to promote local foods.
Indiana Grown established Indiana Grown for Schools in conjunction with the Indiana State Department of Health and Purdue Extension. This program supports farm to school activities and provides a network of growers to school food service directors.
Recently, they received a grant to study the economic impact of buying local foods or products and to determine consumer and producer awareness.
In 2020 Indiana Grown will open the nation’s first agriculture/airport partnership at the Indianapolis International Airport.
