Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program


What is EFNEP

The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) teaches healthy habits that fit your budget. Families learn about healthier food choices, about stretching their food budget, and about reducing the risk of foodborne illness. Our program is offered to low-income Georgians, free of charge.  The program is a series of 6 to 8 one hour sessions that is offered in English and Spanish. 

EFNEP focuses on four core areas - diet quality and physical activity, food resource management, household food safety, and food security.
