Georgia Windhorst is joining Iowa Food Hub as a Marketing and Sales Assistant. She will be assisting with customer service, local food sales and farm to school outreach.
The Iowa Food Hub is a local food aggregation and distribution project sponsored by Allamakee New Beginnings, a 501c3 dedicated to reducing the effects of poverty in NE Iowa. They aggregate products from northeast Iowa farms to market them to institutions, restaurants, grocers and schools with a goal to increase access of local, healthy food across the region.
Windhorst will be working at the Iowa Food Hub distribution facility in West Union.
A Luther College graduate, Windhorst studied Environmental Policy and Spanish. Food system development was of special interest. Since graduating, she has been involved in the food system in many ways, including harvesting produce on a local farm and serving up entrees in Decorah restaurants.
“I am excited to be part of an innovative group dedicated to connecting our food producers to consumers in Iowa, and providing them with nourishing foods grown close to home,” said Windhorst. “I look forward to building a stronger connection between growers and consumers.”
