The Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program (WNEP) is a major educational program within UW-Extension Family Living Program (FLP). The mission of FLP is stated as: UW-Extension Family Living Programs respond to community needs with research-based education and partnership that support Wisconsin families and communities.
The Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program (WNEP) is primarily made up of two federally-funded nutrition education programs for low-income families and individuals – The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education (SNAP-Ed). The mission and mandate of WNEP is to develop and implement educational programs in Wisconsin that are consistent with and fulfill the goals and missions of EFNEP and SNAP-Ed.
* The goal of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education (SNAP-Ed) is to provide educational programs that increase, within a limited budget, the likelihood of all food stamp recipients making healthy choices and choosing active lifestyles consistent with the most recent advice reflected in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate.
