Helping Families Eat Better for Less
The Cent$ible Nutrition program (CNP) is administered by the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Wyoming. It is funded by the USDA through two grants, the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) and the Food Stamp Nutrition Education Program (FSNEP). EFNEP began in Laramie County in 1969 and FSNEP began in January of 1998. The goal of these programs is to improve the nutrition of Wyoming individuals and families; especially those with limited resources. CNP is free to families and individuals who qualify.
