Gaston County is excited to welcome Judith Garcia as our new Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) educator. She will work with limited-resource youth and families with children to teach them about healthy eating habits, being physically active, stretching their food dollar, basic kitchen skills, and food safety skills.

Having started with the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Gaston County in June, Judith describes her first few weeks on the job –  “I am excited to get to know the members of this community and share just how easy it is to live a healthy lifestyle,” she says.

Judith is a graduate from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a bachelors degree in Public Health and a concentration in community health education. During her senior year of college, she did an internship with N.C. Cooperative Extension New Hanover County and absolutely loved it! “I knew I wanted to work with Extension after graduation, she explains. “Lucky for me, Gaston County had an opening for an EFNEP educator and I got it! I enjoy being outdoors, trying new foods, going to the beach, and meeting new people. I am thrilled to be a part of N.C. Cooperative Extension of Gaston County.”

Welcome to Gaston County, Judith!!!
