Jay County Nutrition Education Services

What We Do

The Purdue Extension Nutrition Education Program (NEP) works to improve the nutrition and health of audiences with limited resources in Indiana, free of charge. Our NEP Advisors provide nutrition education to youth and adults through schools and a variety of community groups.

Our research-based programming is fun, hands-on and easy to understand.  The highly interactive lessons help participants:

  • Plan nutritious meals
  • Be active
  • Handle food safely
  • Spend food dollars wisely
  • Improve food purchasing and preparation skills
  • Find out about SNAP benefits and other community resources
