First conceived in November 1996, the Pennsylvania Nutrition Education Network provides a forum for public and private agencies and other groups working with Pennsylvanians eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)- to share information about current nutrition education efforts and to plan and implement innovative strategies.
The Pennsylvania Nutrition Education Network facilitates communication among individuals and organizations engaged with improving nutrition in our communities. They work to ensure that effective, evidence-based, appropriate nutrition resources - primarily for low income populations - are available across the state.
The PA NEN staff, with the help of committee members, are actively involved in promoting and implementing nutrition education throughout the Commonwealth. Each year, they gain funding to conduct education efforts to improve and enhance the health of low-income families.
PANEN membership is free of charge and provides access to webinars around nutrition education topics.
