Greenwood County 4-H Favorite Foods Show

TBD (May 2023) at the Greenwood County Courthouse

The Favorite Foods Show is an exhibit and contest to encourage 4-H’ers to learn about meal planning, food preparation, and presentation.  This is a creative and fun event for 4-Hers.  A “Favorite Food” is chosen, and is recommended that it is one the 4-H’er likes and likes to prepare. A menu is planned with the food, and the table decor is coordinated. Foods chosen may be main courses, desserts, snacks, breads, casseroles or any other.

A recipe card and a menu card should be displayed with the proper table setting. The 4-Her will visit informally with the judge and tell how to prepare and serve the food, why they selected the table service and dishes, and why the centerpiece is appropriate. The 4-Her should also know some of the nutritional value of the food and be able to discuss that with the judge.
