Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP)

The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) was designed to help limited resource families improve their diets through nutrition education and to help them stretch their food dollars. EFNEP teaches a series of FREE nutrition classes for eligible adults.  The classes are taught by trained program assistants and can be coordinated to fit into your organization’s schedule – once a week, several times a week, bi-weekly, etc.

EFNEP shares ideas on:

  • Ways to eat healthy
  • Tips to save money on food
  • Low cost, easy to prepare recipes
  • Safe food handling

Participants complete a series of 6 – 10 lessons and receive a graduation certificate from the University of Florida.
