Nutrition Programs

Worksite and Community Based Nutrition Programs

Family and Consumer Sciences offer several nutrition education workshops for youth and adults in groups, communities, and worksites. Stand-alone workshops range from 1-2 hours in length and can be grouped together to create a lunch and learn series for your community group or worksite. These low cost workshops can be custom designed with topics most relevant to your worksite and/or community groups and include Intergeneration Cooking Classes, Shopping on a Shoestring Budget, Kids in the Kitchen, Healthy Eating from Your Pantry, Food Safety, and Wellness in the Workplace, among many others. 


Building Healthy Habits

Since 1969, the Building Healthy Habits program has influenced the nutritional and physical activity behaviors of low-income families with children through evidence-based nutrition education. Utilizing a holistic approach, educators deliver hands on, interactive lessons that focus on four core areas: diet quality and physical activity, food resource management, food safety, and food security. undefined

As a result of Building Healthy Habits education, graduates of the program

  • Improve their diets
  • Improve their nutritional practices
  • Stretch their food dollars farther
  • Handle food more safely, and
  • Increase their physical activity level
