The Department of Family and Community Health Sciences (FCHS), a community based nutrition, health promotion, and family wellness outreach component of Rutgers Cooperative Extension, provides workshops and on-line resources to educate and support families, worksites, schools, and communities to create healthier lifestyles.
FCHS programming provides access and involvement in a variety of learning opportunities that promote consistent messages about the importance of healthy eating in concert with daily physical activity where consumers live, work and play.

FCHS is a leader in the communities in which it serves and works collaboratively with stakeholders to identify health needs, determine educational priorities, and implement culturally and community appropriate delivery methods. FCHS is represented on numerous advisory boards and coalitions locally and statewide.
FCHS plays a fundamental role in preserving and promoting family development and well-being. We provide trainings and workshops that integrate concepts of human development, health literacy, community food systems, behavioral economics and health economics.
