Health and Nutrition

K-State Research and Extension provides strong educational programming in the area of health.

We are guided by a vision of the work done nationally by the Cooperative Extension System (as detailed in this report). As indicated in the report, we work within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services National Prevention Strategy action plan that focuses on increasing the number of Americans who are healthy at every stage of life through healthy and safe environments and healthy and safe choices.

Food Preservation

Home food preservation is a way to preserve the freshness of homegrown food. While more popular in years past, preserving food at home is still done today. Without factoring in the labor costs, home food preservation can save money compared to commercially preserved foods.

When done properly and safely, home preserved foods are a treat. But when improper practices and unsafe food handling techniques are used, the food can cause foodborne illness.
