This six-week program sponsored by the LSU AgCenter was designed for adults between the ages of 19 and 55 with young children living in the household. The Expand Food & Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) will provide families and youth with practical and useful nutritional and budgeting information that will help them make more informed choices. We encourage you to join us for the inaugural class in the Columbia Parc Community Club House on Saturday, September 14th, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm. The next two classes will be on
September 21st and 28th.
