Please join us in welcoming Savannah Moore as our new Family and Consumer Sciences Agent for N.C. Cooperative Extension, Stokes County Center.

Savannah Moore was raised in the Florida Panhandle in a small town called Navarre. Savannah worked on a horse farm in high school and was allowed to use a small section of the property to raise her own chickens and grow a garden. This was the start to her interests in the food system and knowing where our food comes from. She attended Georgia Southern University for her undergraduate degree, where she majored in nutrition. Some of her favorite projects included establishing school gardens and presenting healthy recipe demonstrations at farmers markets and food banks. During her time at Georgia Southern she was an intern at a farmers market and a 4-H Program Assistant for the University of Georgia (UGA) Extension. She graduated from Georgia Southern with a B. S. in Nutrition and Food Science in December 2017. After university, she started a new position with UGA Extension as an EFNEP (Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program) Program Assistant in Coastal Georgia. Savannah taught nutrition education and provided cooking demonstrations to low resource families in this role. She was then promoted to the EFNEP Program Supervisor and Family and Consumer Sciences Educator. Outside of her supervisory role, Savannah also taught classes on healthy eating and weight management, the nutrition of honey, how to make beeswax products (such as lip balm), and developed videos on hand-washing activities and green cleaning. In August 2019 she began her Master’s of Agricultural and Environmental Education from The University of Georgia and is completing her degree this spring. Savannah has interests in the areas of nutrition, cooking, gardening, food preservation and fermentation, beekeeping, green cleaning, healthy housing, and finance. She hopes to bring her excitement for learning and building a more resilient community to her new role. She joins N.C. Cooperative Extension of Stokes County as our new Family and Consumer Sciences Agent. Please help us welcome Savannah to Stokes County.
