Wood Valley mixes up some Brazilian treats.
More than 45 people attended and raised $113 during a 4-H Food Workshop on Sept. 28. With the money raised, the group will be sending a piglet, a hen with chicks, and worms to developing countries.
Each club in attendance decorated a table in the country’s theme, spoke of the culture, presented a dish, and gave samples to the group. Recipes for the dishes were also passed out. County Line 4-H showcased Thailand, Tower Lake 4-H presented Spain, Wood Valley 4-H highlighted Brazil, Sunnyside 4-H represented Germany, and Labatt demonstrated cuisine from Greece.
Dr. Deanna Hoelscher presented on the variances in diets around the world, highlighting families from each representative country. She spoke about the impact of diet and exercise on the health of children and adults in those countries. As a former Wilson County 4-H’er, she related her experiences in cooking with 4-H as well.
