CNE Deb Dilley at the Boys and Girls Club

Bemidji, MN - The Boys & Girls Club of the Bemidji Area held the 4th annual Harvest Dinner on Thursday, October 10th at the Club. This event is a celebration of family and food. Eighty-three Club, family and community members were fed a meal made primarily from fresh produce from the Club's garden-high tunnel. The garden is now in its 9th growing season and first full season for the high tunnel.

Deb Dilley, a community nutrition educator, spent on average 3 afternoons per week alongside the Club members throughout the gardening season planting, weeding, harvesting and teaching about food nutrition and preparation. Deb organized the harvest dinner using fresh produce from the garden-high tunnel with the help of Club members, volunteers and staff. Club members dedicated to managing the garden throughout the season assisted in meal preparation and serving. High tunnel tours were given throughout the evening. Pumpkins donated by Terry Nennich were also given away to attendees.

Let's look at some of the common reasons people may not eat breakfast and some easy solutions.
