EFNEP Program Assistant, Adult Nutrition Education

Lynette came to the Ohio State University Extension and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program in 2001.  She likes to say she was thrilled to work for a program that serves limited resource families because she’s “a kid from the same neighborhoods”.  “It’s exciting that we (EFNEP Program Assistants) are one-woman shows.  We can teach anywhere and bring everything we need to the site”, she says. 

For many years Lynette grew a quarter of an acre of vegetables every season and so is a huge supporter of community gardens and incorporating the food grown by her participants into her classes.  “Such a critical issue, especially for our participants who live in food deserts, as many do”.
