Is your child interested in learning to prepare food? Are they curious about where food comes from? Currituck County 4-H is hosting a multi-county, 3-day Culinary Workshop for youth ages 9 to 14. Participants will engage in hands-on cooking challenges that involve food preparation techniques, insight into local food programs, and investigations into the importance of healthy eating and physical activity.
