FFI 4-H members Macie Weigand from MFL MarMac (left) and Kaci Rausch from Turkey Valley recently attended the National 4-H Healthy Living Summit in Washington, DC. Behind them is a a futuristic newspaper heading declaring that “All communities in NE Iowa are food secure!”
They used this approach to identify activities that they could lead in their communities to make that headline come true using their passions. As a FEEST intern, Macie wants to see more cooking classes. As a Farm to School cross-age teacher, Kaci wants to see more education at farmers markets. The next step for these young leaders is get to work by connecting with partners to create a plan for their projects.
