Nutrition Education and Outreach Programs

The OSU Extension Service Nutrition Education and Outreach Programs are a part of the Family and Community Health Program and the College of Public Health and Human Sciences. Programs include the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed), in partnership with the Oregon Department of Human Services, and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP). These programs, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, engage with communities across Oregon to provide nutrition education and outreach to thousands of limited income youth, families, and adults.

Home Food Safety and Preservation Program

Food safety and preservation resources and classes, provided through the Oregon State University Extension Family and Community Health, ensures Oregonians have access to the most reliable information available. It is critical that those who prepare food and practice preserving and processing foods at home have access to research-based information on safe food handling. Many of the county offices offer food preservation programs and workshops, including our Master Food Preserver program.
