Distance Education with EFNEP
Are you or someone you know interested in improving you and your family’s health, saving money at the store and basic nutrition tips?
Our educators now have the resources to conduct EFNEP nutrition education classes at a distance with the option of classes taught one-on-one or in small groups. EFNEP has several options available for both adults and youth.
Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) of the Texas A&M 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 ten counties: Bexar, Cameron, Dallas, El Paso, Harris, Hidalgo, Nueces, Tarrant, Travis, 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.
