Nutrition, Family and Consumer Sciences
To improve the diet and nutrition knowledge of youth in LA County, UC Cooperative Extension provides teachers, program leaders and other extenders with free nutrition education curriculum to implement in the classroom.
UC Cooperative Extension offers the following programs:
Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP)
EFNEP, a federally funded program, assists limited-resource families and children acquire the knowledge, skills, attitude and behavioral changes necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle through the promotion of good nutrition and physical activity.
LA County Master Food Preserver Program
The revival of this program is the result of a renewed interest in home food preservation in LA County. Trained UC Master Food Preservers extend research-based information on canning, freezing, drying and fermenting to LA County residents.
