Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program – Adult Series
EFNEP (Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program) helps Adult Participants learn skills and strategies to feed their family nutritious meals on a limited budget and improve their overall health. The skills learned also help families learn how to change behaviors that place them at risk for being overweight and the diseases associated with being overweight like heart disease and diabetes. In partnership with the Eat Smart Move More NC initiative, EFNEP Educators help families and youth adopt positive health behaviors to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. EFNEP is a program of the Cooperative Extension Service through NC State University and N.C. A&T State University.
