How are we funded?
Community Nutrition Education Programs (CNEP) encompasses two programs: The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) and The Oklahoma Nutrition Education (ONE) Program.
The EFNEP and ONE programs are two federal/ state partnerships that support nutrition education for the improved health of limited-resource audiences. Both programs provide nutrition education to limited-resource individuals and families within their communities and are delivered using a learner-centered approach. Program graduates report increased knowledge, enhanced skills and abilities, and improved conditions related to nutrition, health, and well-being.
EFNEP operates in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and 6 U.S. territories and targets limited-resource adults with young children and limited resource youth. It uses a peer-educator interactive teaching model, which makes learning relevant and meaningful for participants. EFNEP has been achieving program results since 1969. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) provide federal oversight. The Land-Grant University/ Cooperative Extension System delivers it locally. EFNEP enrolls and teaches families with young children who receive any type of federal food assistance.
SNAP-Ed operates in 52 states and territories and targets individuals and families eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. SNAP-Ed uses both interactive and other approaches, such as social marketing campaigns. SNAP-Ed has worked cooperatively through successful partnerships since 1988. SNAP-Ed is known in Oklahoma as The Oklahoma Nutrition Education (ONE) Program. It is the nutrition education program for Oklahoma food stamp recipients and the food stamp eligible. The ONE Program is sponsored by the Food and Nutrition Service of USDA and the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service in cooperation with the Food Stamp Program of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service provides federal oversight. The Land-Grant University/ Cooperative Extension System is a primary implementer of SNAP-Ed. NIFA serves as a liaison between the two entities.
