We offer Eating Smart Being Active through UCCE Expanded Food and Nutrition Program EFNEP, which promotes good nutrition and physical activity as a means of preventing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle free of chronic disease.

  • Practice safe food handling
  • Prevent obesity through healthy lifestyles

We offer no cost classes (in English and Spanish) in collaboration with community partners.
