Family, Youth and Community Sciences-The Florida Family Nutrition Program (FNP)

The Family Nutrition Program (FNP) at the University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service is the Florida component of the USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed). It is a partnership between USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service, Florida Department of Children and Families, UF/IFAS, and local County Extension Offices.

The goal of FNP is to reduce the risk of chronic disease, health complications, and food borne illness and increase food security among Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Eligible Florida residents by providing practical programming about making healthful food choices, balancing food and physical activity, keeping food safe to eat, and food shopping on a budget.  For More information please click on this link: The Family Nutrition Program.

Calhoun and Liberty Counties share a FNP Program Specialist, Ms. Shellie King.  She conducts many educational programs in both counties for all ages.  Please see her newsletters below!
