The second annual "Dining In" for healthy family day was celebrated on December 3, 2015.  Family & Consumer Sciences Day is an opportunity to promote family and consumer science programs, tools, and professionals that support family mealtime.  Additionally, this is a day to encourage families to make and eat a healthy dinner together at home.  This year more than 125,000 people committed to participate in "Dining In" Day.

Puerto Rico FCS Program and EFNEP Program from University of Puerto Rico promoted the "Dining in" for healthy families on Family and Consumer Sciences day in the work meetings, educative activities and communities. The Extension personnel shared information about healthy foods and the importance of building good relations in the families and work.
