MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Youth from four states met in Memphis, Tennessee, recently for a culinary showdown at the Mid-South 4-H Food Pantry Competition. Their mission: to create a nutritious, delicious and economical entrée using food pantry staples – in less than 45 minutes.

Eleven teams from Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee and Mississippi competed in the event held in conjunction with the Mid-South Farm and Gin Show. Arkansas 4-H organized the competition, with support and funding from the Southern Cotton Ginners Association and Foundation.
