Family and Consumer Sciences

Family and Consumer Science professionals use research-based information to improve the quality of life for adults, children and families. Our key topics are healthy lifestyles, nutrition and food safety.

Food Safety and Preservation

UI Extension educators train consumers about food safety. We use classes as well as in-person and telephone consultations. Our goal is to keep Idaho residents healthy by preventing food borne illness.

Preserve@Home

UI Extension offers Preserve@Home, a web-based food preservation course. Participants learn to produce high quality preserved foods and the science behind food preservation and food safety.

Healthy Lifestyles

Classes take place through the year on topics including:

  • Menu planning
  • Saving money at the grocery store
  • Healthy food preparation
  • Exercise and strength training
