Help Sack Hunger this Holiday Season



According to information from the USDA, 49.1 million Americans, and more than 15.8 million children, suffer from hunger.  Child hunger is most prevalent before and after school, during weekends and holidays.  Please help us do our small part in sacking hunger this holiday season.

Help us “sack” hunger this holiday season by providing the makings for a complete dinner for 8 people.  Our goal is to provide dinner “sacks” to the 30 families in the North Country Outreach backpack program in Johnsburg before the students leave for the holiday break.

Help us reach our goal of 30 “sack” dinners by either:
« Buying all of the items listed below for a creamy, chicken dinner with pumpkin muffins and fruit for dessert and bring your grocery “sack” to our office before December 17th.  Please find the “sack” ingredients below.

OR

« Sending a check to Warren County Cooperative Extension 4-H for $15.00 before December 17th.  (please note “4-H Holiday Sack Program” on check) and we’ll do the shopping for you.

£ 16 oz. bow tie or shell pasta
£ 2 cans (10 ¾ ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup
£ 12 oz. evaporated milk (choose 2% or fat free) + 1/2 cup water

Teens Invited to Make a Difference in Community Health



Cornell Cooperative Extension and 4-H of Warren County and Washington County invite teens to join the 4-H Choose Health program and make a difference in their communities! “The Choose Health program came out of a concern that many children have habits that could lead to health issues and chronic disease either in childhood, or as they become adults,” explains Abby Henderson, a 4-H Community Educator. “We want all kids to learn healthier habits and have fun along the way!” 

Teens have the unique opportunity to help fight this growing concern by becoming 4-H “Choose Health Action Teens”, or CHATs. CHATs will receive training in healthy food choices and active living, and then use those skills to teach healthy habits to younger children.

For more information or to join CHAT, please contact Abby Henderson by e-mailing
aef 225@cornell.edu or calling the CCE office at 518-623-3291.
