Other Kansas Nutrition Programs

Expanded Food and Nutrition Program (EFNEP)    EFNEP



EFNEP helps young families and youth with limited resources - those most at risk to suffer from hunger, food insecurity and the inability to connect with available support systems.  EFNEP offers practical lessons in basis nutrition, food preparation, food budget management and food safety in settings convenient for the participants.

SNAP-ED (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)     SNAP-ED



The Family Nutrition Program (FNP) offers nutrition education for Kansans of all ages who receive or are eligible to receive food assistance.  FNP is implemented by Kansas State Research and Extension with the sponsorship of the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Service (SRS) and United State Department of Agriculture  (USDA).  Programming takes place in 80 plus counties through the efforts of county Extension agents and their assistants.  The strength and reach of FNP is due, in large part, to the collaborative efforts of Extension and local community agencies and organizations that share a common concern for the welfare of limited resource Kansans.
