The PCCF Agriculture Fund provided fair attendees with breakfast from Chris’s Cakes on Saturday, June 25 prior to the livestock sale. This breakfast consisted of pancakes made freshly in front of attendees and flipped onto their plates from afar. Approximately 225 Pickaway County Fair attendees were served.
PCCF is utilizing the Food Insecurities Fund, a portion of which was allocated through American Recovery Funds, to purchase steers at the Pickaway County Fair. The foundation provided a premium bid of $1.45 per pound for the youth to support their hard work for the long-term commitment that a steer project requires. The steers were delivered to a local processing facility and the hamburger will be given to the Pickaway County food pantries for distribution.
The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) had the opportunity to do an activity for the Cloverbuds at the fair this year! YAC was gifted COSI kits from the Inspiration Station, allowing them to do nature-themed activities with the Cloverbuds. The kids learned about animal adaptation and the food chain.
The Youth Advisory Council is a student-led council made up of students from all four Pickaway County school districts; their mission is to promote community enrichment in Pickaway County through philanthropic activities such as grantmaking, service planning, and community-based partnerships.
