Spotlight on Abby Weber
Southeast Area FCS Extension Specialist
Colorado State University

My name is Abby Weber, and I am the Southeast Area Family and Consumer Science Specialist for 7 counties in the Southeast Region. Agriculture is the major commodity in our small rural communities here on the plains, and with that comes the need for local community sustainability in our food systems. Programs like Cottage Foods Certification, Master Food Safety Advisor, food preservation workshops, and Cooking with Commodities are just a few of the things we do to help make this possible. Participants of all ages learn about food systems from production to consumption through these programming efforts.
