Adult Nutrition Education
An interactive learning process where participants learn how to make food choices which can improve the nutritional quality of meals that they serve. They increase their ability to select and buy food that meets the nutritional needs of their families. They gain new skills in food production, preparation, storage, safety and sanitation; as well as how to better manage their food budget and related resources from federal, state, and local food assistance agencies and organizations.
