Expanded Food & Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP)


The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) provides community education classes for income-eligible youth and adults which promote nutrition and physical activity as a means of maintaining a healthy lifestyle free from chronic disease.

By focusing on improving diet quality, increasing physical activity, assuring safe food-handling practices, and strengthening food resource management skills, EFNEP supports families with children to make meaningful healthy lifestyle changes.

EFNEP also partners with community stakeholders to make changes to the surrounding community context known as “policy, system, and environmental change.” These efforts result in deeper, long-term positive impact for even more youth and families.
