Family Impacts & Outcomes
In FY 2010-2011, California EFNEP provided nutrition education to 9,034 adults and 40,512 youth, indirectly reaching over 39,000 family members.
As a result of the EFNEP program, 85% of adult participants improved behavior in food budgeting, 91% in nutrition, and 72% in food safety. Improvement in these practices not only benefits the parent, but it also influences the behavior of other adults and young children in the household.
EFNEP participants saved an average of $8 per person on groceries a month and as much as $33 a month for a family of four.

“This class changed my life. I avoid sodas and drink a lot of water. I eat 100% whole grains – even my kids do. We like eating this way. I feel great. My doctor, TV shows, and online resources didn’t work. Nothing worked until I took this class. This class made me really think and made me realize that I needed to change. I want to continue with this behavior because I am doing great.” - San Mateo/San Francisco County Adult Participant
