  • About Us

  • The Waukesha County UW-Extension Nutrition Education Program is part of the Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program (WNEP). It is funded by two federal grants:

    EFNEP (Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program) and
    SNAP-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Nutrition Education).

    WNEP operates in most Wisconsin counties through UW-Extension and provides research based education and materials.

    How the Nutrition Education Program can help
    By teaching people to:

    • Purchase and prepare healthful, affordable meals and snacks.
    • Learn to balance food intake and physical activity.
    • Keep food safe to eat.
    • Develop a spending and savings plan to become more food secure.


    How it works

    Nutrition Education Program educators teach about nutrition in a variety of ways:

    • Small or large one-time or multi-session groups; done at various local agency or community sites
    • Home visits
    • Learn-while-you-wait education (such as at food pantries & clinics while clients are waiting for services
    • Participants receive education & materials that contain nutrition information, recipes, money saving ideas and tips.


    Programs are available in English and Spanish.
