Mississippi State University as a land grant institution has a rich history in teaching, research, and service related to agriculture. As a society we have been removed from agricultural production. Research has shown the importance of hands on experiences with foods and consumption by children, especially fruit and vegetables. The Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion Department is very excited to offer for the ninth year a summer camp for children. The camp provides an opportunity for children to experience food production, processing, and preparation. We look forward to seeing you in June for Fun with Food summer camp.
Camp costs $250 per child and includes tee shirt, meals, snacks, and field trips. Enrollment is limited to 30 children with a June 5th deadline for registration.
