Purdue Extension – Nutrition Education Program
The Purdue Extension Nutrition Education Program (NEP) works to improve the nutrition and health of audiences with limited resources in Indiana. We offer two major initiatives to communities, free of charge.
1. Nutrition Education/SNAP-Ed
Our NEP Advisors provide free nutrition education to youth and adults through schools and a variety of community groups.
Our research-based programming is fun, hands-on and easy to understand. The highly interactive lessons help participants:
Plan nutritious meals
Handle food safely
Spend food dollars wisely
Improve food purchasing and preparation skills
Find out about SNAP benefits and other community resources
2. Community Wellness Coordinators
Our Community Wellness Coordinators help make the healthy choice the easy choice.
They collaborate with community partners on broader community change that involves policy, system and environmental changes.
