Competition was fierce, as Meeker County 4-H'ers gathered to participate in the annual 4-H Food Review and Demonstration Day. The event was held Saturday morning, April 9, at the Family Services Center in Litchfield. In all, we had 14 food review exhibits and 15 demonstrators. Everyone did an amazing job. Congratulations on your achievements.

The purpose of Food Review is to give members a chance to explore the Foods project. 4-H'ers set up a display showing a favorite food and questions are asked about food preparation and nutrition in an interview setting. Local winners of the competition include:
