What is NEP?

The Nutrition Education Program (NEP) helps families on a limited budget make healthier food choices and choose physically active lifestyles by acquiring the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behavior changes necessary to improve their health. NEP is free to all participants who meet income guidelines. Additionally, NEP participates in Policies, Systems and Environmental (PSE) strategies that impact communities. These strategies include school wellness, community and school gardens, healthy food pantries, and child care center wellness. Together with community partnerships, NEP strives to improve the health of Nebraskans.
