Family Nutrition Program


The Family Nutrition Program (FNP) increases the ability of individuals and families with limited resources to utilize their food dollars and food stamps appropriately and provide a safe meal environment. Through free, informal, and easily accessible educational programs in the home and community, participants can develop knowledge and skill related to:

    * nutrition and meal planning
    * food purchasing and preparation
    * food safety
    * resource management

FNP assistants deliver behavior focused nutrition education to participants in home and community settings, helping individuals and families to select nutritious foods that fit within their budget. Through live cooking demonstrations and hands-on activities, participants learn how to:

    * invest food dollars into the best nutritious food choices
    * stretch food dollars to last the whole month
    * make healthy choices when eating out
    * protect your family from food-borne illnesses
    * plan meals that their family will love
