Clemson Extension agents with primary food safety & nutrition responsibilities work closely with state extension specialists and researchers located on campus and at the various research and education centers located across the state. They provide expertise in topics ranging from safe food-handling training for individuals, restaurants and commercial food processors to prevent outbreaks of food-borne illnesses to nutrition, obesity prevention, chronic disease risk reduction, and special dietary considerations for individuals and families throughout the lifespan.
In addition, 20 EFNEP Nutrition Educator Assistants (NEAs) deliver education programs that help children, youth and young families with limited resources develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behavior needed to improve their diet, physical activity levels, and become better managers of their food dollars. Food Safety, nutrition, diet and health information can be found at Clemson University’s Home and Garden Information Center and the Nutrition Information and Resource Center.
