About Us

The Cent$ible Nutrition Program is a cooking, nutrition, and physical activity program funded by two USDA grants: the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program- Education (SNAP-Ed) and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP). SNAP-Ed and EFNEP help Americans with limited resources gain skills necessary for improved nutrition and physical activity. 

County-based CNP educators provide nutrition and physical activity classes to adults and youth. CNP partners with schools, childcare centers, and other community agencies to provide these classes. Additionally, educators collaborate with local partners on projects that support healthier communities. Currently, community partnership projects are focused on assisting anti-hunger agencies in providing healthy food options to patrons, partnering with schools and daycare centers to make the healthy choice the easy choice, and connecting locally grown produce to neighbors facing food insecurity. Through these efforts, CNP aims to help Wyoming’s families with limited resources eat healthier for less while decreasing chronic disease and obesity.

CNP is a part of the University of Wyoming Extension and covers every county and the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming.

Our Vision

Empower Wyoming’s adults and youth with limited resources to be leaders in healthy nutrition and physical activity changes for themselves, their families, and their communities resulting in decreased chronic disease and obesity in Wyoming. 

Our Mission

Provide opportunities for positive change in nutrition and physical activity for the limited resource audience through education, multi-level interventions and community engagement.
