Pantry Pride Contest Winner Appears on Georgia Farm Monitor
Submitted by: Cheryl Varnadoe

Savannah Padgett  of Decatur County 4-H was the winner of the third annual Georgia 4-H Pantry Pride Contest held last fall at the Georgia National Fair. The purpose of the contest was to: Raise awareness among 4-H’ers about poverty, hunger and the underprivileged in Georgia; Challenge 4-H’ers to think creatively about food and cooking by developing recipes using ingredients commonly found in Georgia Food Banks; Educate 4-H’ers about the cost of food, and what it takes to feed a family; and Provide youth and families across Georgia with a “recipe bank” for inexpensive, nutritious meals.

The contest was sponsored by the Arby’s Foundation, the Georgia Food Bank Association, Georgia 4-H and the Georgia National Fair.  Savannah’s winning recipe was “Peach Kissed Pork”.  As part of Savannah's prize for winning the contest,  she was  videotaped at the Georgia Department of Agriculture kitchen and appeared on the most recent episode of Georgia Farm Bureau's Meals from the Field. See the link below for the segment. Congratulations, Savannah and Decatur County 4-H!
