What is CNEP?

The Community Nutrition Education Program (CNEP) is a nutrition education program of the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service and receives support from the United States Department of Agriculture and Oklahoma Department of Human Services. CNEP’s mission is to improve the health of limited resource youth and families through practical lessons on basic nutrition and healthy lifestyles, food resource management, food safety and physical activity.

Both youth and adults are served by the program. Nutrition Education Assistants (NEAs) work through the schools and community groups with 3rd and 4th grade students. Adults participate in the program in groups or in home visits
as individuals.
