The Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Library has partnered with the UT Extension office in Montgomery County to offer an 8 week Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program. EFNEP is an educational program for families and youth, particularly families with young children. Families who enroll in EFNEP receive a series of lessons, at no cost to them, on how to choose and prepare healthy foods. Education focuses on selecting and preparing nutritious foods, managing food resources wisely, handling foods safely, and participating in regular physical activity. Trained UT Extension nutrition educators (peer educators) will provide fun and engaging hands-on lessons to those in attendance. Each week attendees will be able to sample food and receive a take home item or utensil that pertained to the subject covered.

Classes started on Oct. 8 and will run from 5:30 – 7:30 pm Tuesdays through November 26 in the large meeting room at the library.  The classes are free and open to anyone.

Deadline for the community calendar is Friday prior to publication. To submit items for the calendar, e-mail them to Items for the calendar will not be taken over the phone. Main Street Clarksville reserves the right to reject items deemed not appropriate for the calendar.
