Cleveland County Kitchen
Cleveland County Kitchen is a collaboration between N.C. Cooperative Extension and Cleveland Community College to showcase local farmers and local foods. A monthly cable television show takes a featured product from farm to table. A research-based companion fact sheet helps consumers learn about the nutritional value and how to prepare each product.
They also learn the importance of eating more fruits and vegetables and how to incorporate these and other nutritious products into delicious, nutritious meals for better health. Our goal is to educate citizens from Cleveland County and beyond about the importance of local foods to our economy, health, environment, and quality of life. For more information, please call Nancy Abasiekong, Extension Agent Family & Consumer Sciences, at N.C. Cooperative Extension Cleveland County Center, 704-482-4365 or visit our web site cleveland.ces.ncsu.edu/
