Cent$ible Nutrition Program (CNP) educator Kelly Pingree has been recognized with the program’s Educator of the Year Award.

Pingree, who serves the Wind River Indian Reservation, received the honor in December during the University of Wyoming Extension’s training conference on the Laramie campus.

CNP Director Mindy Meuli says Pingree’s program had 79 graduates and a 44 percent increase in participant physical activity last year. The CNP curriculum has 17 hands-on lessons.

Meuli says Pingree serves on the Shoshone Cultural Foods project committee; is planning a gardening project in partnership with the Eastern Shoshone 477 Program; and has helped with a number of policy, system and environmental changes at the Warm Valley Senior Center.

CNP is funded through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program. It is a free, income-qualifying, cooking and nutrition education program through UW Extension that helps residents eat better for less money.
