EXPANDED FOOD AND NUTRITION EDUCATION PROGRAM

.....

The Expanded Food & Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) is a fun, free, hands-on nutrition education program for limited-resource parents and other adult caregivers who have primary responsibility for feeding children.  EFNEP teaches participants how to stretch their food dollars, eat nutritious meals, and improve their overall health. At the end of the nine lessons, participants receive a certificate from the University of Florida!

Participants must have children under 18 and be eligible for assistance programs like Supplemental Nutrition Assistant Program (SNAP, also known as food stamps), WICHead Start, or have children who receive free or reduced lunch. Each of the nine lessons include a cooking egment, physical activity, and a free kitchen tool to use at home.
