What We Do

At this time, our usual programming options may be modified or provided virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please contact us for more information about how we can continue to partner together to improve the health of Illinois communities and families.

Build Skills

For staff members and volunteers, INEP provides professional development opportunities and in-services to promote healthier choices at your organization or school.

Collaborate with Community Partners

Where people eat, learn, live, and play can make a big difference in the choices they make each day. INEP works closely with community organizations and schools to improve operations, layout, signage, and more to promote healthier choices.

Connect Resources

Making connections drives our work because we know it makes a difference. INEP connects individuals and families with relevant resources available to assist them with healthy lifestyles on a budget. If you're with an organization or school, INEP can connect you with potential grant opportunities, professional development, and more to better serve the needs of your students or clients. 

Deliver Programs

Making nutrition and activity changes that stick can be hard – especially without the right skills and tools. We help individuals and families succeed by providing engaging, face-to-face nutrition education classes and events, online resources, and healthy messaging strategies.

Participate in Research

We talk the talk and walk the walk when it comes to finding the best solutions to help communities and families. Learn about past and current research from the INEP team.
