2016 County Food Show/Challenge Information

The new year for the Food and Nutrition Project will be getting underway soon.   :-)

We have some information for those who would like to participate.

The theme for the 2016 Food Show is “Picnic Perfect.” This theme will allow participants the opportunity to explore many aspects of food preparation, food safety, creative recipes and more!

Concentrate on foods that could be enjoyed when spending a day at the park, a leisurely afternoon at the beach, or an outside family gathering. Good luck to each of you and enjoy this year’s project!

The County contest will be held January 9th and the deadline to enter will be January 4th.  You will need to submit your recipe for one of the 4 eligible categories by 5:00 pm that day, and be sure to follow the guidelines you will find at the State 4-H website.  

Remember, at County level everyone from Pee Wee up to Senior may participate in both the Food Show and the Food Challenge.  

Food Challenge is a team event, so be sure to check with your club managers about forming a team.  

If you have any questions you may contact FCS agent, Jennifer Peraman, at the Extension Office.
