Food & Families Impact Reports Back »

SDSU Extension Food & Families program impacts strengthen, and contribute significantly to the overall effectiveness of the national work done by Family & Consumer Sciences (FCS) Extension. The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) describes FCS as “…integrative, multidisciplinary field of science that studies relationships among humans and their environments to foster quality of life, strengthen communities, and achieve a healthy sustainable world.”

The program impacts described on this page provide a thorough picture of learning community and programmatic efforts provided by SDSU Extension Food & Families staff across South Dakota, further summarizing our 2015 accomplishments and their impact on our state, communities, families, and citizens. They focus on how SDSU Extension is “Growing South Dakota” through food safety, gerontology, financial education, healthy, physical activity, nutrition, and wellness.
