strawberryThrough NEP thousands of Oregonians in 31 of 36 counties and on Warm Springs, Grande Ronde and Umatilla Tribal Lands have learned how to make better food choices, handle food safely, and manage their resources so they do not run out of food before the end of the month. Information is shared through nutrition education classes, and through indirect means such as displays and newsletters.

Key Elements of NEP:
- Nutrition education is research-based
- Educational topics are chosen in response to local needs
- Programming is the result of local and state partnerships
