CNEP Adult Program
2021 OutcomesInformation from 895 program graduates.
"When one woman began the adult program, she was taking care of her ill mother and 3 children, 2 with special needs. She was tired, stressed and barely holding on. She was skeptical at first, but then she started to look forward to the sessions. She knew her children were not getting proper nutrition but didn't know how to fix it. She now has a notebook binder that holds her information from the lessons, her weekly meal plan with ideas and a few recipes. She makes a meal plan every week and doesn't feel stressed about what to get at the grocery store. The children also help with ideas and are learning how to plan healthy meals. She said that her kids are starting to see the health benefits, and she's very happy about that. She has also really enjoyed the meat thermometer she received from CNEP. She was used to cutting into the meat to see if it "looked" done or just guessing. She's glad she doesn't have to worry about foodborne illness with her family now. She is a different woman since completing the program. She says she feels healthier, less stressed and happier now that she is in control of her and her family's health."
