Our Mission

The mission of Community Nutrition Education Programs (CNEP) is to educate and empower limited-resource Oklahomans to improve nutrition and physical activity behaviors. CNEP’s vision is to improve the health of Oklahomans. In 2023, CNEP had 11,528 program participants, 6,092 program graduates, 1,282 youth reached by the Farm to You exhibit and 10,335 individuals impacted by community grant projects.

What We Do

Trained paraprofessionals and OSU Extension Educators deliver research-based, hands-on learning experiences for youth and adults about diet quality, food safety, physical activity, food security and food resource management. CNEP also supports communities across the state financially to implement policy, systems and environmental changes. By providing applicable education and changing the environment where people eat, learn, live, play, shop and work, CNEP is improving the lives of Oklahomans. View the 2022 Impact Reports below.
