Joni Phelps, EFNAP Agent at the UK Extension Office, was in studio Wednesday morning to WPKY’s weekly Extension Program.

Joni started off by telling listeners about the upcoming Hands on Nutrition Workshop on Monday, April 9th at 5:30PM at the Extension Office located on HWY 62 West in Princeton. Participants will learn how to make healthy food choices for themselves and their families, learn how to prepare meals that include a variety of foods using MyPlate, and participate in hands on cooking. The workshop is free and open to the public but you do need to register by calling the Extension Office at 270-365-2787. The workshop must have at least five participants.

Joni then told listeners about a new collaboration with the George Coon Public Library. The Extension Office will now hold their Recipe Review at the library once a month. It is free to participate and registration will not be required, just show up at the library on Recipe Review days. The next Recipe Review will be on Monday, March 26th, from 10AM to 2PM. Joni will be set up with samples and recipe cards near the computers on the first level of the library.

Joni also mentioned that another Laugh and Learn Preschool Playdate is coming up soon and reminded listeners of the Cookout for Camp on Saturday, March 24th from 11AM to 1PM at the Butler parking lot. All proceeds from the cookout will go to keep overall costs down for 4-H Camp.
