Food Banks & Food Pantries

Illinois Nutrition Education Programs (INEP) are part of University of Illinois Extension and provide nutrition education to individuals and families in communities around the state of Illinois.

We know that the healthy choices are not always the easy choices, especially on a limited budget. This is why we focus on reaching our program participants where they are in their own communities. Through nutrition
and cooking classes, interactive displays, and online resources, we provide knowledge and teach the skills necessary to our clients in order to help them make healthier meals, spend their food budgets effectively, and make healthy living a natural part of their day.

Our partners across Illinois include schools, faith-based organizations, park districts, early childhood centers, and more, to provide evidence-based, learner-centered education and skill building.
