Do you have an hour a week to learn new ideas to stretch your grocery dollars and make healthier choices for your family? Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Expanded Food and Nutrition Program (EFNEP) could work for you! Let’s talk about low-cost quick and healthy meals, and how to keep your family healthy and active. All you need is a reliable internet connection and an hour a week!
Morning and evening bi-monthly orientation workshops are available on a rolling schedule beginning January 2021. Classes will be taught by Marsha Sebro, Nutrition Educator of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County. The program offers a series of virtual, interactive lessons to resource-limited families and youth free of charge. We will engage in conversation and discussions that relate to the concerns of families at every session. Participants will meet once per week either in a group or one-on-one setting. Classes will be available through Zoom, phone, or face-to-face, when possible.
The Expanded Food and Nutrition Program (EFNEP) utilizes evidence-based resources and has been proven to help families with limited income make healthier nutrition and lifestyle choices. Topics include stretching food dollars, food safety, reducing salt and sugar intake, and making simple, healthy meals for the family. New recipes and ways to incorporate physical fitness into daily routines are included in every class.
Participants who graduate from the program receive a Certificate of Completion, an EFNEP Cookbook with delicious and affordable recipes along with kitchen tools to support healthy eating.
