SIOUX CITY – Seaboard Triumph Foods (STF) has made a $15,000 donation to the learning kitchen at Iowa State University Extension and Outreach – Woodbury County. The Seaboard Triumph Foods Learning Kitchen allows youth and adults to participate in nutrition education, canning and food preservation lessons, safe food handling training and more.

A ribbon cutting with the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce was held at the extension office last Monday. The ceremony formally introduced the Seaboard Triumph Foods Learning Kitchen.

“We are very grateful for the generous support from Seaboard Triumph Foods as it gets us closer to our fundraising goal for Woodbury County Extension and ensures that low cost programming can be provided to the residents of Woodbury County and beyond,” said Molly Hewitt, County Director.

For 102 years, ISU Extension and Outreach – Woodbury County has provided valuable education and services to thousands of people annually. ISU Extension and Outreach provides unbiased, research-based information to Iowans as the outreach component of Iowa State University. Programs are offered in the following areas: 4-H and Youth Development, Human Sciences programs for families, Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Community and Economic Development.

“STF is proud to support the programming that takes place at ISU Extension and Outreach and is very excited for this to be happening in Woodbury County,” said George Solo, Vice President of Human Resources for Seaboard Triumph Foods. “The opportunity to be the naming sponsor for the Learning Kitchen and enhancing their efforts to help youth and adults learn more about their food was a natural alignment for us. We are committed to producing quality products for our global consumer, and being able to educate the Siouxland community about where their quality food comes from is just as important.”
