COARSEGOLD - Coarsegold 4-H had a lot of participation in the Madera County Favorite Foods Day this year, held at Minarets High School.

Favorite Foods Day is something that anyone in 4-H can be a part of. They do not have to be in a Cooking Project to show their food. It is a day when any 4-H member can cook something at home and then bring it to compete with other foods in that category.
