The Choctaw County Extension Office recently offered one of several classes on couponing. Instructor Rachel Copeland taught participants how to use coupons to save money and where to get the coupons. It was a valuable class and there is already a wait list for the next one. If you would like to learn more about couponing, contact the Extension Office at 205-459-2133.
Take some simple precautions when preparing food for storage with Food Storage Charts and tips!
The Expanded Food Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) helps to build relationships and empower limited resource families toward reductions in government costs spent on health care, increases in physical activity, fewer low-birth weight babies born to mothers through the Today’s Mom program with improved nutrition, and reductions in food storage and food preparation practices that cause foodborne illness.
EFNEP continually provides nutrition education through the Eating Smart and Being Active program and insures that heads of households stretch their food dollars and enhance their family’s well-being and ability to make informed dietary choices.
