Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP)

The NIFA Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) is a unique program that operates in all 50 states and in American Samoa, Guam, Micronesia, Northern Marianas, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. It is designed to assist limited-resource audiences in acquiring the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and changed behavior necessary for nutritionally sound diets and to contribute to their personal development and the improvement of the total family diet and nutritional well-being. EFNEP reaches youth audiences through in-school programs, out-of-school programs, and summer day camps.
