Family Nutrition Program


The Family Nutrition Program (FNP) at the University of Florida IFAS Extension Service is the Florida component of the USDA's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed).  It is a partnership between USDA's Food and Nutrition Service, Florida Department of Children and Families, UF/IFAS, and the Charlotte County Extension Office.

The goal of FNP is to reduce the risk of chronic disease, health complications, and food borne illness and increase food security among Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Eligible Florida residents by providing practical programming about making healthful food choices, balancing food and physical activity, keeping food safe to eat, and food shopping on a budget.
