Since 1969, the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) has successfully addressed critical societal concerns by employing paraprofessional staff and influencing nutrition and physical activity behaviors, particularly those with young children. Through a community-based, relationship-driven, interactive educational approach, EFNEP has directly impacted economic, obesity, and food insecurity challenges that hinder the nutritional health and well-being of this nation. In New York State, EFNEP is administered through Cornell University and delivered by Cornell Cooperative Extension on the county level.
