Adult Nutrition Education Program
At the UC Cooperative Extension, we're teaching Californians how to make healthy choices on a limited budget.
We act as a bridge between the learning and knowledge of the UC system and our community, tailoring the latest science, curriculum and information to the needs, culture and language of our low-income communities.
Our goal is to help these families, moms, youth and seniors make better nutrition decisions, maximize limited food budgets and plug-in to our county’s unique opportunities.
