Join us for Tasty Travels Across America
Raising kids, eating right, spending smart, living well—that’s the theme of a national Living Well campaign being promoted by Family and Consumer Sciences Extension agents at the national level and here in Kentucky.
Local FCS agents work through the University of Kentucky Extension Service to offer information and programs that help families achieve a positive, healthy lifestyle.
On Tuesday, July 24, join us for a culinary trip across America to enjoy a meal “by the bite” while exploring familiar and new foods relating to the geography of our country and state food cultures. “Tasty Travels across America” will be presented at noon and again at 6 p.m. at the Boone County Extension Office in Burlington. This program will explore recipes from the Extension Family and Consumer Sciences Living Well Cookbook.
The cost of this unique program is only $5, which includes your meal by-the-bite and a copy of the Living Well Cookbook. This $29.95 value book is being made available exclusively at the Tasty Travels Across America program due to a generous grant from the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences.
The goal of our current Living Well Campaign is to provide people with the education and information they need in order to “live well.” This is a great opportunity to get better acquainted with the Extension service and discover the valuable resource that you have at your fingertips.
Seating is limited at Tasty Travels across America, so register early. Stop by or call the Carroll County Extension Office, 500 Floyd Drive in Carrollton or by calling (502) 732-7030 for the registration form. Paid pre-registration must be postmarked by July 16 in order to reserve your copy of the hardback book. Join us on July 24—you’ll be glad you did.
