Nutrition Education

In Umatilla County, Extension Family & Community Health brings education to limited resource Oregonians through the Oregon Family Nutrition Program (OFNP), part of the Nutrition Education Program (NEP). OFNP primarily serves individuals and families who receive, or are eligible to receive, food stamps or commodities such as the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR). All programming is research-based and follows the most recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

OFNP educational services are available for youth and adults, including senior and single adults, as well as families. Through partnerships with public and private service providers, ONFP provides education through one-time events and series of classes. Delivered in an age-appropriate format, topics include:

  • Making healthy food choices
  • Eating fruits and vegetables
  • Choosing meals and snacks that reduce fats, sugar and salt
  • Preparing inexpensive healthy meals
  • Food safety
  • Food resource management
  • Staying physically fit
  • Garden-enhanced nutrition education
