The District 3 4-H Food Challenge is a unique opportunity to participants in an innovative food and nutrition competition. The 4-H Food Challenge brings fun, learning, application of knowledge and skills, and group competition together at one event.

The 4-H Food Challenge is modeled after such competitions as the Food Network’s Iron Chef, the 4-H Food Challenge allows teams of 4-H members to create a dish using only a predetermined amount of ingredients. From these ingredients, 4-H members must identify, prepare and then present information related to the serving size, nutritional value, and cost of the dish. Through out of this energized process, the 4-H members are demonstrating their culinary and food safety skills.
