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.
