EFNEP targets low-income families with young children, and youth with limited incomes.


What is the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program?

Families with children and day care providers who are income eligible may participate in free home-based nutrition education lessons intended to help parents, children, and caregivers develop healthy eating and fitness choices for life.

Through the EFNEP program you will learn: Managing a food budget, feeding picky eaters, cooking quick and healthy meals, after school snack ideas, and keeping food safe. Cornell Cooperative Extension Schoharie and Otsego Counties Nutrition Educators are available to give lessons in a group setting or on an individual basis. They will provide you with up-to-date nutrition information and cooking tips, help you make healthy choices to maintain a healthy weight, help you understand the importance of physical activity in a healthy lifestyle, and provide a supportive learning environment.
