Nourishing a Farming Community

Team members in Des Moines, Iowa, feed their community with fresh produce from Wells Fargo’s giving garden.

When people think of Iowa, they often envision lush farmland and plentiful fresh fruits and vegetables, said Sarai Rice, executive director of the Des Moines Area Religious Council. The reality, she added, is farming in Iowa mostly consists of producing corn and soy beans that don’t necessarily end up on local residents’ tables. Watch the video at Wells Fargo Stories.
