Fall is coming and so are the great fall food programs with the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.

The Food Systems Program Coordinator, Brittany Demezier, stopped in this morning to tell us about some of the programs that are coming up.

This seminar will be at the University of Dubuque from 6 to 8:30pm and will teach you how to use different types of pork, learn how to shop for the perfect cut of meat, and meet local pork producers. The evening will conclude by preparing a dish with guidance from a professional chef.

The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
