EFNEP is a federally funded nutrition education program for low income families and youth that has been in existence for almost 50 years. Nutrition education is delivered by paraprofessionals (supervised by professionals) in low income communities in all states and territories. In Massachusetts, we currently have offices in Springfield, Worcester, Lawrence, Brockton, and Fall River.
