Welcome to Corn for a Cause! We love sweetcorn! We grow it, sell it, and donate it to those who might not otherwise have access to this delicious, healthy, locally-grown vegetable.
It’s corn season, and we’re taking orders and showing up at markets. For every dozen ears of sweetcorn you buy or gift, we donate another dozen to organizations, such as local food pantries, that feed hungry hungry people. Click here to see a few places we’ve donated.
Find us at:
- Beaverdale Farmers’ Market in Des Moines Tuesdays July 23 and July 30 (4-7:30 PM).
- Produce in the Park in Atlantic Thursdays July 25, August 1, August 8.
You can also help us make fresh corn available by:
- Visiting us at the farm to pick corn! Picking with your friends, coworkers, community members is a fulfilling experience. We’ve groups looking for a volunteer opportunity—St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Atlantic and Grinnell College Alumni from Central Iowa have both joined us, for example. Contact us to schedule a group signup time.
- Making a donation to our organization. Your dollars help us grow and deliver fresh corn to those who might not otherwise enjoy the summer taste of sweet corn. Thank you!
