Macie Weigand recently completed her FEEST internship. Here are her thoughts about the year.
What have a learned from this whole experience?
I will never forget the first meal I made at a Postville FEEST, and ever since then I’ve though we needed it at MFLMarMac. I loved getting more and more kids involved and the best part was seeing them try new things and liking it. I hope my fellow classmates took something from those experience and continue to stay open to new things.
- My project goal.
My main goal was to inform people about healthy options and easy ways to eat healthy snacks. Most of my research was online. I had some help from adults and advisors.
- Where and why did I present my project?
I shared my poster at the Marquette farmers market in July. I felt like it was a big hit. I had quite a few people stop by and said they had already tried that and it was good, or they wanted to try it in the future. I collected their emails and I sent the recipes they wanted to try.
- Future goal with 4-H FEEST.
I hope to continue either cooking class or FEEST within the school. I know the kids are very excited about doing something like that. I will probably use other kids to help me arrange it and go from there.
