The "Eat HERE." Movement


The “Eat HERE.” movement characterizes the culture of Iowa City and strengthens the local economy…one bite at a time.  For every one hundred dollars you spend in a locally owned business, sixty-eight dollars remains in the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures vs. forty-three dollars spent in a national chain.
