Iowa State will serve student-raised turkeys in campus dining halls this fall
Starting this fall, Iowa State University will begin serving campus-raised turkeys to students in the dining halls.
Food supply does not get much more local than it is on the Iowa State University campus. Starting this fall, the University will serve campus-raised turkeys to students in the dining halls.
The first flock of turkeys raised at the school was recently sent out for processing and will make 7,000 lbs of oven-roasted turkey breast ready for dinner. The University’s Animal Science Department says it is a win-win situation that will help increase awareness and educate students on where their food comes from.
