The many months of COVID19 shelter-in-place have been full of challenging changes. We have had to alter the ways we work, play and connect. For the Expanded Food and Nutrition Program (EFNEP), our remote environment has led us to invent new ways to continue serving our communities. The EFNEP youth team in Alameda and Contra Costa counties eagerly embraced the challenge of creating lesson materials for remote delivery. Educators are creating numerous video lessons for students from kindergarten to middle school, covering concepts from handwashing to MyPlate to label reading, and more!
