EFNEP provides evidence-based programming to Kindergaten-12th grade students.

Youth EFNEP targets youth in primarily grades Kindergarten-12.  A series of 6-8 classes is offered in school settings and in out-of-school time community settings.

EFNEP has worked with schools, after-school programs, summer food service programs (SFSP), and summer camps.

EFNEP is free for school districts that qualify having 50% or more of their student population eligible for free or reduced school lunch/breakfast.

Youth EFNEP is offered as a series of six to eight, dynamic one-hour lessons. Lessons are based on MyPlate concepts and include basic nutrition, label reading, increasing physical activity and food safety.
