Moore County 4-H Members Receive First Place!
Moore County took three 4-H Cooking Around the World camp participants to compete at the Regional 4-H Cooking Challenge in Harnett County. Teams were given a basket with ingredients they needed to utilize while preparing a balanced and nutritious meal. They had access to pantry items and all of the necessary equipment to be creative with their dish. After the meals were prepped, the teams gave a presentation about their dish to a panel of judges. Our Moore County team worked great together and ultimately received first place! 

Mystery Basket Items: tilapia, sweet corn, field peas, peaches, and pre-cooked tater tots
