Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program
Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service is a flagship nutrition education program funded by USDA's Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service. Since 1969, EFNEP has worked in local Texas communities providing food and nutrition education to vulnerable limited resource families and youth. Today the program is located in eleven counties: Bexar, Cameron, Dallas, El Paso, Harris, Hidalgo, Nueces, Tarrant, Travis, Webb, and Willacy. Trained EFNEP educators teach basic nutrition, food safety, shopping on a budget, and food preparation skills to clients using hands-on activities and practical, easy-to-understand materials.
