4-H Broiler Project: From Embryology to Harvesting program

Northampton County Cooperative Extension is providing an opportunity to address the needs across the socio-ecological model of Northampton County residents and students by providing youth education, training, food safety education, and food access by implementing the 4-H Broiler Project: From Embryology to Harvesting program. This program provides the opportunity to collaborate with Northampton County schools, farmers, food pantries, local businesses, and the community. This program will provide educational opportunities for the youth of many ages, from second graders in Northampton County schools learning about embryology through high school students working to raise chickens. Harvest day will be an educational event that provides additional training opportunities for local farmers, community members, and youth. Food safety plays a key role in this program at every stage, ensuring the health and welfare of the chickens throughout their life cycle and during the harvesting process. In the end, whole chickens will be donated to local food pantries to be able to provide to those in need in Northampton County. This project is a well-rounded community service and education project that will involve our youth and all expert areas in Cooperative Extension (Agriculture and Food, Health and Nutrition, and 4-H Youth Development) to make an impact related to food access for those in need.

This program is for anyone ages 10+
