Pork Cooking Demo

Phyllis Ferguson from the Tennessee Pork Producer’s Association will be joining us via Zoom April 21 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. ET/5:00 to 6:00 p.m. CDT to teach you how to make some some delicious pork nachos! The best part: participants will get a $10 gift card to purchase the ingredients. All that is required is to sign up, purchase ingredients, and join the Zoom. It’s that easy! This opportunity is open to any 4-H member.

National 4-H Volunteer Conference

What keeps volunteers motivated?  Is it tangible or intangible rewards?  T-shirts, caps, coffee mugs, puppy sweaters, double fudge brownies, or even the occasional Chinese buffet can all play a part at keeping volunteers happy. 
But research shows that it is the intangible rewards that keep volunteers motivated.  Programming efforts need to also focus on these intangibles. 

Possible Summer Feeding Programs for 2021 4-H Day Camps

The Tennessee Department of Education works with USDA to offer feeding sites traditionally within free and reduced county programs. Since the pandemic, USDA has waived certain restrictions that allow anyone to participate in summer feeding programs. Please complete a short survey about the possibility of utilizing this type of program for your 2021 Summer 4-H programming.
