This educational event gives youth an opportunity to showcase their food preparation and presentation skills. Youth gain skills in ideal nutrition practices while adapting recipes, learning about nutritional value of ingredients and planning well balanced meals to pair their recipes with. The program also encourages youth to learn where foods come from.
This program incorporates two of the three NYS 4-H mission mandates: Healthy Lifestyles and Science, Engineering and Technology.
NYS farmers provide many foods that we all enjoy every day. We would like to offer a great big thank you to the farmers who supply us with healthy, nutritious, economical and diverse foods for our tables each day.
