Family and Community Health

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension’s Family and Community Health unit helps Texans better their lives through science-based educational programs designed to improve the overall health and wellness of individuals, families, and communities.  The FCH program in McLennan County strives to address nutrition and wellness issues through classroom presentations, lectures, brochures, handouts, website education, specially designed programs, hands-on activities, and one-on-one contact. A special nutrition program, Better Living for Texans (BLT), targets food stamp recipients, Head Start participants and parents, WIC clientele, Title 1 Schools, and summer food service sites.  This program concentrates on general nutrition, stretching food dollars, and increasing overall health through proper dietary and physical activity components.  Nutrition series or one-time programs are available through this program.  If you would like more information on FCH and BLT programming, please contact the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in McLennan County by emailing Rachel Esquivel, CEA, FCH or April Strickland, Extension Agent, BLT.
