Purdue Extension Offering Free Nutrition Education Classes

Indiana (From Release) – Throughout Indiana the Purdue Extension Nutrition Education Program (NEP) works to improve the nutrition and health of audiences with limited resources. The program is offering free nutrition education lessons to schools and community groups and engage with community partners on broader community change.

The NEP assistants provide free nutrition education to youth and adults through schools and a variety of community programs. The research-based programming is fun, hands-on, and easy to understand. The highly interactive lessons help participants plan nutricious meals, be active, handle food safely, spend food dollars wisely, improve food purchasing and preparation skills, and find out about SNAP benefits and other community sources.

The Nutrition Education Program has existed in Indiana since 1994 as part of Purdue Extension and is funded by two federal funding streams: SNAP-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education Division) and EFNEP (Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program.
