Participants gain practical knowledge and skills through interactive workshops. Some topics include healthy eating, menu planning, food shopping, basic food preparation/cooking skills, and food safety.  In addition, EFNEP educators encourage fun family fitness.  For more information, please contact Erica Benvenuti at erica.benvenuti@uconn.edu or 860-885-2825.
