Sherman program featured in publication
Sherman County 4-H Camp was featured in IMPACT 2019, presented by the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (NEAFCS). In the category of Childhood Obesity Prevention, Sherman’s “Be a Food Hero with a Healthier 4-H Camp Menu” is listed as an example of “Changing Environments Promotes Health.” The publication mentioned how the camp has revamped its traditional camp menu by incorporating Oregon State University Food Hero recipes featuring more fruits and vegetables, adding more “from scratch” menu items, and offering outdoor cooking.
IMPACT 2019 will be used by extension employees and volunteers at the Public Issues Leadership Development Conference. These education pieces will be shared in state delegation visits. Additionally, these impact statements are shared with USDA NIFA Administration and FCS Program Leaders and Joint Council of Extension Professionals leaders and representatives.
