Better Lives, Stronger Communities

OSU Extension family and consumer sciences (FCS) gives people the knowledge, skills and tools needed to make healthy, informed choices. We teach and promote safe food practices, better nutrition, better finances and better relationships – helping people acquire the knowledge and skills to make smart decisions in these areas.

Our family and consumer sciences professionals turn evidence-based, impartial, current research into useful information that can improve the quality of people’s lives. We work to make information accessible to all Ohioans.

You can count on FCS to provide reliable, evidence-based information to encourage – and empower – people to adopt practices and behaviors to improve their finances, build more positive relationships with friends and family, and embrace healthier, nutritious lifestyles.

While OSU Extension in Morgan County does not have local family and consumer sciences program staff who offer county-level services, you can learn more about all OSU Extension family and consumer sciences programs at


Do you own a pressure canner and are you uncertain whether it is working properly? The Morgan County OSU Extension Office will test dial gauges for Morgan County residents free of charge. During each 15-minute appointment, the dial-gauge will be tested against a calibrated Master gauge for accuracy. We will also do a safety check on the canner. Educational materials may be available. The Educator will be happy to answer your food preservation questions.  Please call the Extension Office at 740-962-4854 to schedule an appointment to get your dial gauge tested.
