Who We Are

We are difference makers and thought leaders for improving the health of Illinois families and communities.

Our nutrition, activity, and food budgeting education programs are based on current research and engage learners in engaging hands-on classes and activities. Collaboration with local, regional, and statewide organizations to promote healthier choices helps us further increase impact.

By focusing on improving food access, increasing the likelihood of healthy choices, and helping families save more money, we are making a difference in the lives of Illinois families and their communities.

Illinois Nutrition Education Programs includes the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program. We are part of University of Illinois Extension and located in nearly every county in Illinois.
