Greetings everyone. We have had a busy week at Project Worth. This past weekend was the annual Menifee Mountain Memories Festival in downtown Frenchburg, Kentucky. This festival consists of 2 pageants, food booths, arts and crafts booths, 4-H dog show, a theatre presentation, car show, duck race, cornhole tournament, 4-H talent show and for the first time a bus tour to highlight attractions in Menifee County. Project Worth Outreach was one of the tour’s stops. We took this opportunity to inform people about Grow Appalachia and the impact it will have on the hunger problem in Menifee County. We had approximately 50 people on the tour stop at Project Worth Outreach. Most were very interested in the missions of both Project Worth Outreach and Grow Appalachia. Below please view some photos of Project Worth Outreach and tourists that heard all about Grow Appalachia.

We have asked our Grow Appalachia Gardening Project partners to supply us at least one recipe that includes something that they are growing in their garden. We would like to post at least one recipe a week on the Grow Appalachia blog. So here is the first recipe:
Please let us know what you think about these recipes. Have a great week everyone.
