The theme for the 2018 Food Show is “Fresh from the Farm”. This theme will allow participants the opportunity to explore many aspects of fresh foods, physical activity, and the value of locally grown foods. Another aspect to consider is the simpler life of the farm and the importance of family and working together. In addition, 4-H members can discuss the growing season their dish is associated with: late spring and early summer, high summer, and early fall. As well as, discussing where the ingredients for their dish were grown, especially if purchased from a local producer or farmers market or possibly harvested from their own garden.
