Nebraska Tasting Party

Our Tasting Party was a complete success in complete thanks to the businesses in Nebraska who donated food and goodies for the event.  The students worked in groups to write letters to Nebraska business owners asking for a sample of their food.  The students then made a poster for their company, which was shared by each group at the party.  Our class got responses from five businesses!  They included:

Sweets by Suzanne in Lincoln, NE (toffee and peanut brittle)
Jisa's Farmstead Cheese in Brainard, NE (many samples of different kinds of cheese)
Holen One Farms in Loomis, NE (dipping and glazing sauce)
Barn Candle Company in Hastings, NE (Harvest Soup Mix- put together by Malena Richardson)
Monument Foods in Eustis, NE (Kamut- WheatBursts)

Thanks to all of these companies and all of those from the other classes as well.  I believe we had about 15 companies donate food and it was enjoyed and appreciated by all of us.  What a fun day and fun process.  Thanks to our volunteers, Malena and Brenda, for helping out as well.
