Montgomery County Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) partnered in 2006 with 22 local agencies to enroll 627 families and 333 youth in its programs. Seventy percent of adults completed the program. In all, 87 percent reported improvements in planning meals, comparing food prices, and no longer running out of food. Nearly 83 percent of adults ate more healthfully, and over 70 percent adopted recommended food safety practices. Nearly 90 percent improved in at least one nutrition practice, including making healthy food choices, reducing salt, reading nutrition labels, and making sure their children ate breakfast.
