Family & Consumer Sciences in Brunswick County
Hi! My name is Meghan Lassiter and I am the Family & Consumer Sciences (FCS for short) Agent in Brunswick County! I started my Extension career working as a nutrition educator with NC State’s SNAP-Ed program, Steps to Health. My passion is providing people with the education and tools they need to make cooking and healthy eating easy and affordable…
In FCS, we view the family as the cornerstone of a healthy society. Our mission is to improve the well-being of the family through educational programs, influencing public policy, and helping families put research-based knowledge to work in their lives.
Focus areas for the work in Brunswick County include:
- Healthy Eating, Physical Activity, and Chronic Disease Prevention
- Local Food Systems
- Food Preservation
- Food Safety
Each day serving as the FCS Agent in Brunswick County is very different from the next! That’s part of what I love so much about the job and Cooperative Extension! In the span of a week, you might find me teaching about food, nutrition, or cooking at an after-school program, a local church, a food pantry, the Extension offices, a library or community center, and even a school! My audience ranges widely between youth and adults, urban and rural, beginners and more advanced—and I hope to reach you somewhere in the middle of all of that!
