Currently available programs:

Family Nutrition Program (FNP): This is a nutrition education program for limited-resource audiences.  Mary, our FNP Program Assistant, delivers nutrition education to groups and individuals to bring about lifestyle changes.  The goal of this program is to help people with limited resources develop the knowledge and skills to use their food dollars and stamps wisely.  This program operates with Indiana Family and Social Services Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 

If you have questions about this program or want to sign up, please call Mary at the Washington County Extension Office at (812) 883-4601.
