About the Food Security Program

Our team is dedicated to bringing food to all of Wake County. Together staff, VISTAs and volunteers strive to make a difference in the community.

Expanded Food & Nutrition Educators

Through a community-based, relationship-driven, hands-on educational approach, Expanded Food and Nutrition has directly impacted economic, obesity, and food  insecurity challenges that hinder the nutritional health and wellbeing of this nation. EFNP Educators work with families, youth, and community organizations across Wake County to teach nutrition education, budgeting, cooking and kitchen safety skills!
