Nutrition, Family and Consumer Sciences
The Sacramento Nutrition, Family & Consumer Sciences (NFCS) Program links research-based education with life experiences to help individuals with limited resources improve their lives, their families, and their communities. Our NFCS Programs develop and implement community-based educational outreach that addresses critical needs of the county's diverse multicultural communities.
