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

Youth EFNEP targets youth in primarily grades Kindergarten-12.  These seven highly interactive classes are offered both in school settings and in out-of-school community settings.  

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

EFNEP is free for school districts with 50% or more of their student population who are eligible for free or reduced school lunch/breakfast.

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