Cooking Fresh Food
Programs across the region offer free cooking and nutrition education for families to eat healthier and save money! Here are MFCC members at work:
UNH Extension Nutrition Connections is a no-cost, hands-on nutrition education program that provides limited-resource families the knowledge and skills they need for better health. Nutrition Connections is New Hampshire’s home for the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed). We offer these programs at no cost to low-income families. Adults with children and seniors who receive food stamps, WIC, CSFP, TANF, or SSI automatically qualify.
