Expanded Food and Nutrition Education (EFNEP)

August 30, 2022

Throughout the Summer of 2022, the Spartanburg County Nutrition Educator worked tirelessly to deliver EFNEP curricula to youth and adults. We had the opportunity to deliver Nutrition Education lessons at different locations, following brand new partnerships created throughout our county. Amongst the youth audience, we had the privilege to teach the “Choose Health: Food, Fun, and Fitness” (CHFFF) curriculum to the Spartanburg County Public Library, Sparty’s Kids Camp (at USC Upstate), and the Spartanburg Northside Development Group, etc.

As for Adults, various homemakers throughout Spartanburg County. Locations such as Lyman, Cowpens, Wellford, and Spartanburg have participated in the Eating Smart ~ Being Active (ESBA) classes. Although out of Spartanburg County, we were invited by The Carolina Community Action Inc. in Union County and Birth Matters.
