FAMILY AND COMMUNITY HEALTH

ABOUT US

The OSU Extension Service Family & Community Health program promotes lifelong health and well-being for individuals, families, and communities.

The SNAP-Ed program, along with the volunteer programs, including Family Food Education, Master Food Preservers, and Family & Community Education deliver engaging nutrition, food resource management, food preservation, emergency preparedness, and physical activity education to promote access to healthy food and active lifestyles, and to strengthen the local community food system. 

Collaborations with community partners secure and preserve strong community connections between local communities and our FCH programs. 

“OSU Extension offers a great program that teaches kids the importance of eating healthy and making healthy fun!” — Ashley Carroll, Todos Juntos
