Family & Consumer Sciences Day

Since 2014, nearly half a million
 people have committed to "Dining In" on Family & Consumer Sciences (FCS) Day!

AAFCS honors Founder Ellen Swallow Richards by celebrating FCS Day on her birthday (see the Top Ten Facts about Ellen Richards). Through the FCS Day initiative, AAFCS provides information, tools, and research on the benefits of families preparing and eating healthy meals together.

In 2019, you are asked to host a “Dine In” meal with your neighbor of choice.

Be sure to check this website for updates and new resources! If you have any questions or comments about this website, please email pr@aafcs.org.

Thank you to our 2019 sponsor!
