Family & Consumer Sciences (FCS) Day - December 3rd

For 2015, AAFCS is continuing with the theme, “Dining In” for Healthy Families, and the goal of the campaign is to double 2014 results and receive 200,000 commitments to“Dining In.” 

December 3rd was chosen as Family & Consumer Sciences Day to honor family and consumer sciences pioneer and AAFCS founder Ellen Swallow Richards (December 3rd is her birthday).

To reach the goal of 200,000 commitments, everyone needs to participate—even if it’s just a small simple action. On behalf of the AAFCS Board of Directors, we are asking you to commit to “Dining In” on December 3rd.
