The 2020 New Castle County Favorite Foods Contest was held on a soggy January 25th morning. Nonetheless, 4-H members prepared a dish and brought it along with a place setting and centerpiece to Kirk Middle School.
4-H members learn a variety of life skills in this activity including:
- Knowledge of good nutrition and meal planning using MYPlate food guide.
- Food preparation skills, food safety and display techniques.
- Originality, creativity, initiative, time management, interview skills and poise.
Contestants are judged based on the following: menu, recipe, food preparation, table setting and member knowledge. Master Food Educators, 4-H volunteers and 4-H Alumni serve as judges. The Delaware 4-H Foundation sponsors awards for this event.
Congratulations to all the participants!
