EFNEP - UGA Extension


EFNEP offers a series of sessions called “Food Talk”. You can learn how to make healthy, quick, and inexpensive meals for your family.  

There is no charge for you to participate. Program graduates will receive our “Meals in Minutes” cookbook as well as a certificate of completion.

The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) is funded by the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture and offered nationwide.

The program’s mission is to improve the nutritional health of vulnerable populations.

EFNEP fulfills this purpose by bringing together federal, state, and local resources and utilizing the vast grassroots infrastructure of Cooperative Extension within the Land-Grant University System.

In Georgia, EFNEP is offered through the University of Georgia and Fort Valley State University.
