United Educators Credit Union, Free Financial Curriculum Resources
Family & Consumer Science

What can you do with leftover baked potatoes? How do you make meatloaf that matters? What is the difference between peppermint and spearmint? Is mincing the same as chopping? What is a GNP? a CEO? a 401(k)? Why should I start my retirement fund in my 20s? How many credit cards should I have? Who is Dow Jones, and why does he keep going up and down?

MPR has the answers. MPR programs and Web sites provide a wealth of resources for family and consumer science students and educators, particularly in the areas of food and finance.

Let MPR be your place to:
  • Find impassioned arguments for use of fresh foods and spices, creativity, and experimentation in the kitchen.
  • Access recipes, restaurant reviews, and cooking tips.
  • Break down the world of finance into memorable, bite-size bits of information.
  • Get current reports on financial news that impacts students, families, and communities.
  • Expose students to lifelong resources for building their own budgets, retirement accounts, and recipe files.
