Are you interested in improving your health, working with a nutrition educator, and reducing your risk for chronic illness? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions then the Family Nutrition Program may be just what you need.  The Family Nutrition Program (FNP) is a federally funded program designed to teach SNAP-eligible, low income Floridians the importance of eating healthy and being active on a budget, all at no cost.

FNP provides a variety of learning experiences to people of all ages in numerous community settings. Participants are educated on evidence-based nutrition principles that are consistent with the Dietary Guidelines of America and USDA’s MyPlate.  They learn how to choose and prepare healthier snacks and foods, shop smarter, plan meals, to be physically active, and receive assistance with planning and implementing community gardens.    Jamila[1]

In Orange County, FNP is currently being supervised by Jamila Adams MS, RD.   Jamila is a Registered Dietitian who works very closely with her Program Coordinator, Kimberly Shouldice to oversee six Program Assistants that go out within the county to deliver the health message.  Partnerships have been established with local schools, health, community and senior centers, public housing, libraries, food pantries, WIC, and various faith-based organizations, but this list is not exhaustive.jamilla program coordinator
