Family Nutrition Program
The Family Nutrition
The Family Nutrition Program is a nutrition education program for limited-resource audiences. Program assistants across Indiana organize group and one-on-one lessons to bring about lifestyle changes related to nutrition and food resource management. FNP's goal is to help individuals and families with limited resources develop the knowledge and skills to use their food dollars and stamps appropriately and to provide a safe meal environment. This is accomplished by providing free, informal, and easily accessible educational programs in homes and at various community agencies and organizations. These programs focus on nutrition and meal planning; food purchasing, preparation, and safety; and resource management. In Indiana, the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service operates the FNP program, in partnership with the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
To find out more about the Family Nutrition Programs offered contact Carolyn Schmidt, FNP Assistant at the Warrick County Extension Office at (812) 897-6100; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; or visit us in the southeast corner of the basement of the Warrick County Courthouse in Boonville, Indiana.
