During the 20201 year, EFNEP enrolled participants throughout Caddo Parish. One professional and two paraprofessionals taught EFNEP classes at a variety of locations. Our target audience includes limited-resource individuals. Participants included youth grades Kindergarten through 12thgrade and adults who are raising youth. Participants completed enrollment and exit surveys which included questions to assess nutrition knowledge and behavior changes. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, some groups joined lessons in-person, while others joined virtually.
