BEST Community Resource Center has partnered with OSU to provide a series of nine lessons in a curriculum designed to teach families with children about USDA dietary recommendations using an interactive approach.
Each lesson contains research-based nutrition information, stretching food dollars, physical activity, parent tips, and preparation of healthy recipes. Participants also receive educational enhancements such as recipes and resources in addition to their classes. Enhancements are given at the end of each series to promote healthy behavior change.
What are the benefits?
It costs less than $210 in grant dollars to reach one EFNEP family with 3 to 6 months of intensive, practical nutrition education classes. Preliminary results of a Cost Benefit Analysis in Virginia show that for every $1 spent on EFNEP, there is a potential health care savings of $2 to $17 due to the prevention or delayed onset of nutrition-related chronic diseases and conditions among participants. Thus, this is a proven program that clearly works for the benefit of families and the nation.
When are the classes offered?
Tuesday Evenings at 5pm via zoom
