Mission: To assist limited-resource families and individuals in making simple lifestyle changes to improve the diet and nutritional well-being.
The University of Guam’s Community Nutrition Education Programs (CNEP) promote making the healthy choice the easy choice in Guam. Guam residents, adults and children alike, do have access to healthy food, healthy 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 at a lower cost, keeping food safe, and being active, read on for information about our FREE programs!
EFNEP – the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program – 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 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 implement of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The Guam Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) manages the SNAP benefits portion of the program and is partnered with UOG-CNAS to implement SNAP-Ed by providing the education that helps family members use SNAP benefits most wisely. Additionally, SNAP-Ed creates community partnerships (like CPY) to prevent obesity in Guam through policy, system, and environmental changes. SNAP-Ed has been active in Guam since 2014.
