Family Nutrition Education Programs

Missouri’s SNAP-Ed program

Through the Family Nutrition Education Program (FNEP), MU Extension is dedicated to providing research-based nutrition education to Missouri’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients and those who are eligible. MU Extension nutrition educators work with individuals and groups in a variety of settings throughout the state to meet a wide range of needs. Whether reaching out to youth and adults through direct education or working with communities to promote healthy policies, systems and environments (PSE), the goal of FNEP is to help participants make behavior changes to achieve lifelong health and fitness.

Often people tell us how the program has impacted their lives, even years after they have participated. Each day there are new stories that bring home the same important message: The MU Extension Family Nutrition Education Program makes a difference, a difference that means better health and fitness for a lifetime.
