Community Nutrition Education Programs (CNEP) promote making the healthy choice become the easy choice in Guam. Guam residents, adults and children alike, do have access to healthy food, drinks, and physical activity. Our programs teach and promote knowledge and skills that support healthy behaviors. If you are interested in learning about planning healthy meals, tasty cooking for less, keeping food safe, and being active, read on for information about our FREE programs!
EFNEP is the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program, which is a US Department of Agriculture supported program that operates through Land-Grant Universities (LGUs) in every state, in the District of Columbia, and in the six U.S. territories – including at the University of Guam. EFNEP is a nutrition education program for limited-resource families.
UOG-CNAS has been providing EFNEP education in Guam since 1981.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education (SNAP-Ed) is the family education part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The Guam Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS), who manages the SNAP benefits part of the program, partners up with UOG-CNAS to implement SNAP-Ed by providing the education that helps family members use their benefits most wisely in addition to creating community partnerships (like CPY) to prevent obesity in Guam through policy, system, and environmental changes. We’ve been doing this since 2014.
