What does Consumer and Family Sciences program focus on?
The consumer and family sciences (CFS) program focuses on three main areas: human development, foods and nutrition, and family resource management. Education on a wide variety of subjects affecting families or consumers is also offered to various groups and service organizations in the county with which we partner, and through newspaper and radio. The CFS Extension Educator serves as advisor to Extension Homemaker Clubs (EHC), an organization of homemakers in Grant County that serve the community and continue to learn about current issues that affect home and family. A Family Nutrition Advisor through the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) works with families of limited resources to offer food preparation and food safety lessons face-to-face in homes. This person works from referrals from several social service agencies in the county.
