Experiential learning is used to promote healthy lifestyle changes related to nutrition and physical activity. NEP offers children and adults the chance to try new foods that are healthy and budget friendly!
NEP reaches children from preschool to grade 12 in the School District of Lancaster. School-based classroom lessons focus on the importance of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy and physical activity.
Adult lessons are delivered in food pantries across Lancaster County to adults who are eligible for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Adult coaching focuses on making informed decisions when using SNAP benefits to stretch food budgets, meal planning and preparing healthy foods.
