Expanded Food & Nutrition Program (EFNEP)

Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP)

 
EFNEP uses a holistic nutrition educational approach to improve
  • Diet quality and physical activity
  • Food resource management
  • Food safety
  • Food security
In the EFNEP model, paraprofessionals (peer educators) deliver a series of hands-on, interactive lessons to program participants. Lessons are evidence-based and tailored to meet the needs of the audience. Paraprofessionals typically live in the communities where they work. They recruit families and receive referrals from current and former participants, neighborhood contacts, and community organizations and agencies. EFNEP paraprofessionals are trained and supervised by professional personnel. Volunteers may assist with program delivery.

Children's Healthy Living Program (CHL)

 

The Children’s Healthy Living Program for Remote Underserved Minority Populations in the Pacific Region (CHL) is a partnership among remote Pacific states and other jurisdictions of the US: Alaska, American Samoa, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Federated States of Micronesia, Hawaii, Republic of Palau, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands. All jurisdictions have US Land Grant Colleges, which have united in the Pacific Land Grant Alliance (PLGA). The goal of CHL is to build social/cultural, physical/built, and political/economic environments that will promote active play and intake of healthy food to prevent young child obesity in the Pacific Region. To do this, CHL engages the community, and focuses on capacity building and sustainable environmental change. CHL strives to serve as a model for other regions with remote underserved Native populations at risk for obesity.

Childhood Obesity Prevention Program (COPP)

Childhood Obesity Prevention Program (COPP)

 

COPP leverages relationships with key stakeholders to affect positive change in nutrition and health at the individual, group, and population levels. In short, COPP strives to make "the healthy choice, the easy or default choice" by focusing on access, availability, affordability, and acceptability in the food and built environments. COPP also focuses on improving policies that encourage healthier behavior choices and building data systems to enhance our ability to understand of childhood underweight, overweight, and obesity.
