Expanded Food & Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP)


Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) provides free nutrition education workshops to low-incomes families living in Baltimore City. A series of interactive and culturally appropriate workshops are facilitated to groups by Nutrition Assistants trained in nutrition concepts and community-based education.

Participants will learn about basic food groups, nutritious food choices, ideas for meal preparation, food safety and storage practices, smart snacking, physical activity, and improving diet for a healthier lifestyle for individuals and families.

To schedule a series of workshops please contact Baltimore City EFNEP Coordinator, Maribet Brute, MPH, (410) 856-1850 ext. 122.

Our work couldn't be possible without the collaboration of our community partners.
