The corn feed tradition started in 1974 with events in Moorhead and the Twin Cities. Now, corn feeds hosted by alumni across the nation and even across the globe. Each event is unique, but you will find delicious corn, fun and Cobber community at every corn feed.

Below you'll find the list of all of the corn feeds planned for this year, in alphabetical order by state. 

If you would like to host a Cobber Corn Feed in your area, check out the Corn Feed Guidebook. Hosts are reimbursed up to $200 for expenses.
