The PizzaThon program was originally developed by Eldon Weber as a result of the Iowa State University "Vision 2020" program. It launched in 1994 and has enjoyed student engagement ever since. The Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation is pleased to carry on this tradition of educating students about agriculture.
