On Friday, September 29th and Saturday, September 30th teenagers and agents from Brunswick, Chowan, Edgecombe, Jones, Lincoln, Montgomery, Rutherford, Union, and Warren visited Millstone 4-H Camp for NC 4-H’s Walmart Nutrition Education grant program. NC 4-H’s Walmart Nutrition Education program pairs teen leaders with their county nutrition educator to help them teach nutrition lessons to youth in grades K – 12. The teens participated in training on food safety and knife skills, teaching physical activity to youth, action planning, policy, system, and environmental change.

The Walmart Nutrition Education grant is a grant funded through National 4-H by the Walmart Foundation. In North Carolina, the project will mobilize and empower trained teen leaders to market, recruit, and teach nutrition education lessons to youth. Using teen leaders to teach younger youth creates an environment where the teens are developing a sense of responsibility and learning how to effectively communicate, teach, and make an impact in their communities. The following counties are participating in the project: Brunswick, Burke, Chowan, Columbus, Edgecombe, Jones, Lincoln, Rutherford, Union, Wake, and Warren. – Salim Oden, 4-H Healthy Living Coordinator
