Food ‘n Fun

Food ‘N Fun is a friendly, food-themed event open to ALL Somerset County 4-H Clubs. Participants share their creativity by selecting a theme and planning a menu and table setting around that theme. Themes do not have to be club related. Past themes have included Disney, Jungle, Sports, Harry Potter, and Big Foot – the possibilities are endless!

Participating club members will each contribute a food or drink (prepared at home), along with the recipe if possible. Clubs will also include an attractive menu and a poster that shows how their menu selections fit into the MyPlate guidelines.


1.    To give club members an opportunity for creative and artistic expression through food preparation and table setting.

2.    To challenge youth on knowledge of basic nutrition principles.

3.    To challenge youth in basic food preparation and safety skills when preparing and presenting food as a real-life skill.

4.    To encourage youth to eat more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and low-fat dairy.

5.    To encourage youth to engage in conversation and social etiquette.

6.    To provide youth opportunities for public speaking through explaining their dish in conversation and presentation of their meal.

7.    To provide an opportunity for 4-H clubs to work together as a team, learn from peers and mentors and have fun through “learning by doing”.
