Once again, Indiana State Fair attendees are invited to follow the Indiana’s Family of Farmers Recipe Trail. They are encouraged to collect recipe cards from all 8 locations around the Fairgrounds and bring them to the final destination at the Indiana Family of Farmers Booth in the DuPont Food Pavilion where they will receive a prize forfinishing the trail. There they will also be able to register for the daily dairy giveaway and the grand prize of a Frigidaire® chest freezer. Last year, over 2,000 participants took part in the trail at the Indiana State Fair.

For each person who finishes the recipe trail, Indiana’s Family of Farmers is partnering with Feeding Indiana’s Hungry (FIsH) to donate one pound of food to food banks across Indiana. A total of 2,000 pounds of food was donated last year. The goal this year is 3,000 pounds of donated food.
Partner with Elanco
Along with the traditional Recipe Trail, IFOF will be partnering with Elanco on their Hunger Initiative. We will be at Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis on Wednesday, August 1. Elanco will be there to promote the hunger initiative and to ask for canned food donations in exchange for a 2012 Indiana State Fair ticket. Come visit us from 11:00am – 1:00pm to give back during this pre-fair event!
Partner with Habitat for Humanity
The Habitat Build on the State Fairgrounds is a stop on this year’s recipe trail. In addition, Indiana Family of Farmers is committed to donating a freezer and meat/dairy donations to fill the Frigidaire® freezer to the new homeowner. Many thanks to the farmers around the state who grow our food and who generously give back!
