About University of Rhode Island Community Nutrition Education

"Within our community education office, we have the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program- Education (SNAP-Ed), the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP), and the Children, Youth and Families at Risk (CYFAR) programs. Our office provides nutrition education workshops, works with community partners to help make the healthier choice the easier choice, and provides recipes, handouts, videos and other free resources for anyone to access. Our nutrition education efforts are delivered across the state, but mostly in the core cities of Providence, Pawtucket, Central Falls, and Woonsocket. Let’s learn more! Direct Education Throughout Rhode Island we offer nutrition education workshops. The workshops focus on culturally-relevant healthy eating and physical activity within a limited budget. Community Partners We work with community partners to help create sustainable policy, system and environmental (PSE) changes to complement nutrition education and support healthy behaviors. Helpful Resources To extend the reach and learning, our website and social media platforms provide recipes, handouts, videos and other free resources that can be accessed and shared by anyone. We provide workshops, recipes, handouts and videos in English and Spanish (and currently developing into Portuguese).
