UC Cooperative Extension Nutrition Programs
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.
