The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) has proved to be a remarkable success in the seven years it has been in operation in California. EFNEP was set up as a joint effort of the federal, state, and county governments to help families acquire knowledge and skills to improve the nutritional quality and adequacy of their diets. The program focuses on families living in poverty or near poverty, especially those with young children.
