As the San Joaquin County NFCS Advisor who is providing oversight for Sacramento County EFNEP, I am writing this recommendation to express full support for the Capitol Corridor MCP NFCS Advisor position. I feel this position will not only provide direct leadership for EFNEP supervisor/educators housed at UCCE Sacramento County but will have the potential to develop and collaborate on expanding programming across the Capitol Corridor MCP. The advisor would be uniquely positioned to collaborate with specialists, advisors, and other researchers (internal and external) throughout California to bring UC ANR evidence-based education and applied research to state level policy development and educational programs focused on the multi-faceted environmental factors influencing childhood overweight/obesity and food security.
