Local 4-H’ers Compete At 4-H Food Challenge

Eight Lackawanna County 4-H food and nutrition members recently competed in the regional 4-H Food Challenge Contest in Carbon County.

The Junior team members were: Emily Bartell, Clarks Summit; Lindsey Bartell, Clarks Summit; Lauren Bartell, Clarks Summit; and Erin Bartell, Clarks Summit.

Anna Flowers, Clarks Summit; Abby Adamsky, Clarks Summit; Emma Adamsky, Clarks Summit; and Charlotte Rozenburg, Factoryville; competed in the Senior Division.

Fifty-three 4-H members from across the state competed in this new Pennsylvania 4-H Contest, which is modeled after the television show “Chopped.”  In addition to cooking a dish from designated products and a limited pantry, participants had to have nutrition and cost comparison knowledge for their presentation.

The Lackawanna County Junior Team placed second and the Senior Team placed first in their region. The 4-H food and nutrition program is sponsored by Penn State Extension.  It teaches youth ages eight to eighteen cooking, nutrition, meal planning, and cost comparison skills.
