This teen leadership board provides support to Family and Consumer Sciences project areas such as foods, nutrition, art, home design, scrapbooking, and finance. Members build their leadership and service skills through participation at monthly meetings, 4-H program workshops, service activities, and community outreach efforts.

To be eligible for continued participation on the Food and Fashion Board (FFB), members are expected to attend 75% of meetings and 3 additional activities. If notified in advance, the FFB advisors will take extenuating circumstances into consideration.

If you are unable to attend a meeting for any reason, it is your responsibility to contact Chris Kendle to find out what was missed, what needs to be made up, and if additional meetings were scheduled.
