Illinois Nutrition Education Programs include the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program. Programming is available in nearly every county in Illinois.

By providing easy solutions through in-person lessons and online resources, INEP makes the healthy choice an easy choice where families eat, learn, live, shop, and play. Programs are based on current research and engage learners in practical, hands-on classes and activities.

INEP also works with local organizations to promote healthier settings and food choices, further increasing impact. By focusing on improving food access, increasing the likelihood of healthy choices, and helping families save more money, we are making a difference in the lives of Illinois families and their communities.
