The theme for the 2018 Food Show is “Fresh from the Farm.” This theme will allow participants the opportunity to explore many aspects of food processing, physical activity, and the value of agriculture. Another aspect to consider is the importance of family and working together. In addition, 4-H members can discuss the growing season their dish is associated with: late spring and early summer, high summer, and early fall. In addition, 4-H members might consider discussing where the ingredients for their dish were grown, whether locally or otherwise. Fresh from the Farm is a theme intended to help 4-H members increase their knowledge of where food originates and the importance of agriculture and farming. However, in NO WAY is the goal of this theme to imply that foods sold or harvested from the farm are more nutritious than foods which are purchased from the local grocery store. In addition, please be clear, that foods purchased from the grocery store (not just foods purchased from a farmer’s market or harvested from a garden) are fine to use in your food show recipe
The 4-H Food Show is a unique opportunity for 4-H’ers to showcase the skills and knowledge they have gained from participating in foods and nutrition projects as well as experience in presenting themselves with confidence. However, project members are not required to enter the show to complete the project.
