Nutrition Education and Outreach Programs
The Oregon Nutrition Education Program (NEP) Mission is to educate limited income Oregonians about healthy food choices and physical activity.
The Oregon Family Nutrition Program (OFNP) is offered through the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education, better known as SNAP-ED. We assist those who qualify for our programming including adults, seniors, teen parents, and youth in families with limited incomes. More than 80 percent of adult NEP participants are enrolled in at least one food assistance program. Our programs are delivered through classes, demonstrations, workshops, displays, education materials delivered to the home, and social marketing. There is no cost to participants.
NEP programs help families manage food resources, make healthy food choices and handle food safely.
