Food & Nutrition

Kent County Extension Office strives to meet the needs of our Tri-county families (Cecil, Kent and Queen Anne's) in improving diet and health and building and sustaining their families.  The program offers a variety of educational resources to improve life skills.  These programs are offered by UME, often in collaboration with other county agencies and organizations.

If you have more questions regarding school nutrition, group nutrition education programs for adults and seniors, food safety, canning and food preservation, please feel free to call 410-778-1661.

Food plays an important role in our lives.  It provides sustenance, pleasure and has a significant impact on our health and wellbeing. Through nutrition, health and fitness programs, Extension educators enable Maryland families, individuals and employees to make healthier choices for themselves and those they care for.

Extension educators provide programs in topics such as food safely and preventing foodborne illness, food preservation, and nutrition education for youth and adults.
