Our adult and youth nutrition education programs, the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) and the UC CalFresh Nutrition Education Program (formerly FSNEP), inspire and empower families and individuals to lead healthier lives by teaching them to eat well, stretch their food dollars, and handle food safely. The programs are federally funded by the USDA, and are administered by the University of California Cooperative Extension. Nutrition Educators are trained by the University of California to teach classes to low-income adults.
