Extension Service of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Extension
and Research. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), managed by National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), and the Cooperative Extension Service fund the program.
The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) is to empower individuals,
families and youth with limited resources to acquire knowledge, skills, attitudes
and behavior changes necessary to maintain nutritionally sound diets and increase
EFNEP uses a holistic nutritional educational approach. Clients will experience improvements in
four core areas:
Individuals who are eligible for assistance programs such as Supplemental Nutrition
Assistance Program (SNAP), WIC, Head Start or their children participate in the school
breakfast/lunch program are also eligible for EFNEP
The adults are taught in small groups or individually by trained EFNEP educators.
The majority of participants complete the EFNEP curriculum in less than 9 sessions. The
EFNEP youth program focuses on providing food and nutrition education to contribute
to personal development of youth from families with low income.
Youth classes are available year round.
The programs are free and informal and available at convenient locations and times.
The instructors live in your county and deliver intensive, multi-session nutrition
