Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP)
For 40 years, MSU EFNEP has assisted limited resource audiences in acquiring knowledge, skills, attitudes, and changed behavior necessary for nutritionally sound diets. Ultimately, the goal is to contribute to personal development and improvement of the total family diet and nutritional well-being. EFNEP targets youth and limited-resource adults with children under the age of 19, and reaches individuals through series of sessions and demonstrations. Through EFNEP, participants learn self-worth, and that they have something to offer their families and society.
