Let’s Talk Spuds and Buds

“Let’s Talk Spuds and Buds,” a Food Safety and Health and Wellness Program sponsored by the Alcorn State University Extension Program, will be held Thursday, September 28, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Jefferson County Multi-Purpose Building, 307 S. Main St., Fayette, MS.

This event is in recognition of September’s designation as both National Food Safety Month and National Potato Month.

Jardana Brice, area family and consumer science educator, will facilitate. Program volunteers Deborah Tenner and Patricia Adams will assist her.

During the event, participants will learn about the nutritious value of potatoes. They will also view a cooking demonstration, participate in a taste test and learn how to store potatoes correctly. This event will provide participants with information that can be used to enhance their personal health, and will also educate them on potato food safety to decrease their chances of foodborne illnesses.

This event is free and open to the public. For more details, contact Brice at 601-786-3131 or [email protected].
