Rachel Ezzell | FCS Agent

Hey y’all! I’m Rachel Ezzell, and I’m the Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) Agent here in Duplin County. I started working with Extension as an intern in 2020 and loved the opportunities. I’m excited to continue my Extension career here in Duplin County!

About FCS in Duplin County

In FCS view the family as the cornerstone of a healthy society. Our mission is to improve the well-being of the family through programs that educate, influence public policy, and help families put research-based knowledge to work in their lives.

The Family and Consumer Sciences program in Duplin County consists of programming in the following focus area:

  • Healthy Eating, Physical Activity and Chronic Disease Prevention
  • Local Food Systems
  • Food Safety
  • Food Preservation

Each day as an FCS Agent looks a little different, and that’s one aspect I love about my job! You might find me teaching about food, nutrition, and cooking at an afterschool program, a local faith community, a school, or even the library! In Extension, our audiences are diverse in age, background, and experience. We hope to reach you where you are and continue to learn and grow with you.
