UGA EFNEP delivers an interactive educational series called Food Talk where participants try new recipes and learn how to stretch their food dollars, improve nutrition practices, and prevent food-borne illness.
The Food Talk curriculum is designed for caregivers and parents of young children as well as pregnant women and teens. Families who are eligible for any type of public assistance are eligible for EFNEP.
UGA EFNEP partners with hundreds of agencies throughout the state of Georgia to deliver Food Talk in community settings. Programming within each county is coordinated through UGA Extension.
UGA EFNEP provides all teaching materials and recipe demonstration ingredients at no cost to our partners or participants. Kitchen facilities are not necessary. We only require a table and electricity.
EFNEP graduates report an average savings of more than $80 on groceries. Participants also improve diet quality, increase physical activity, and more often follow food safety guidelines.
