Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP)

EFNEP offers a series of interactive, practical lessons in basic nutrition, food preparation, food budget management, and food safety in settings convenient for you. The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program is sponsored by the USDA and implemented by K-State Research & Extension.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Buy healthy food on a budget.
  • Plan nutritious and quick meals.
  • Prepare recipes your family will love.

We serve parents with young children and pregnant women that are eligible for:

  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
  • WIC
  • Head Start
  • Children who receive free and reduced lunch

EFNEP offers a series of classes to churches, recreation centers, and other organizations in Crawford, Montgomery, Labette & Wilson counties:

  • Eat Smart and Move More
  • Healthy You and Baby, too

All classes are completely FREE!

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP-Ed)

Kansas SNAP-Ed, formerly known as the Family Nutrition Program, is a nutrition education program provided at no cost to Kansas families with limited resources.  Our goal is to provide nutrition education to individuals and families who receive food assistance or who are eligible to receive food assistance.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program education is sponsored by the USDA through a contract with the Department for Children and Families (DCF) and implemented by Kansas State Research and Extension.

The strength and reach of Sedgwick County SNAP-Ed are due, in large part, to the collaborative efforts of Extension, local community agencies, and organizations that share a common concern for the welfare of limited resource residents.
