The Nutrition Education Program is undergoing some changes. We still have a Nutrition Education Program Assistant, Matt Hunt. However, we have also added a Community Wellness Coordinator, Claire Rivron. She will also be working in Hancock and Marion counties later in 2016.
Community Wellness Coordinators improve nutrition and health in limited-resource communities statewide by concentrating on NEP's five focus areas: diet quality, physical activity, food security, food safety, and food resource management. The Community Wellness Coordinator will also help build a community plan as well as create and implement nutrition and health initiatives.
