Food and Nutrition Education in Communities

Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) is a nutrition program under Cornell Cooperative Extension that delivers a series of hands on lessons to program participants who are low-income families, especially those with children.

Participants in the program receive information from nutrition educators on:

  • Nutrition and physical activity
  • Food resource management
  • Food safety and security
  • Cooking nutritious low-cost meals
  • And more!

Upon completing the program, participants will receive a certificate of completion and have greater knowledge and skills to change attitudes and behavior necessary to improve health and well being.

Interested participants and community groups, including public libraries, shelters, food pantries, churches, independent living facilities, wellness centers, ESL and GED program facilities and schools contact our office at 315-379-9192.
