EFNEP teaches stability for food, nutrition as mom strives to rebuild her family, life

Wendy*, a mother of three, is currently in a recovery program and struggling to make ends meet and feed her family. UCCE Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) works in partnership with the recovery program and sent a coordinator to teach an 8-week class on how to eat healthier and stay active. Wendy was one of the 50 participants in her session. By the end of the class, she had started using a shopping list, planning meals, buying healthier food, and providing fruit and vegetable snacks in place of junk food. In doing so, Wendy is teaching her children healthier habits and teaching herself to economize. Now she has money left over at the end of each month instead of the other way around.
