The Barbados 4-H Foundation was represented at the 1st Caribbean 4-H Food Festival held in Roseau, Dominica on July 17, 2007 to July 21, 2007.
The Festival was organised by the Caribbean 4-H Council.
Barbados was represented by Mr. Anthony Yearwood (Clover 4-H Club) and Ms. Lynette Phoenix (Holders' Hill Community 4-H Club).
The festival also attracted representatives from Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica and host country Dominica.
The three-day programme included the following:
* An Official Launching of The Caribbean 4-H Food Festival Activities
* Caribbean 4-H Leaders Meeting
* Public Speaking Competition
* Trash to Cash Competition
* Walk (with 4-H banners) from Pottersville to Harlem Plaza
* Opening of Food Festival
* Judging of Best Booth
* 4-H Talent Competition
* Closing Ceremony
The Barbados delegation thought that it was a useful activity and welcomed the opportunity to interact with 4-H Leaders and members from the Caribbean, and to display Barbadian delicacies such as Cou Cou & Salt Fish, Coconut Bread, Pudding & Souse and Pickled Breadfruit. It is hoped that the festival would become an annual activity in the Caribbean 4-H Programme.
