I am Joanie Contreras, Program Coordinator, Senior with the Pima County Community Nutrition Program-EFNEP. I have had the opportunity and pleasure of working with the Pima County Community Nutrition Program-EFNEP for over 20 years. I love people and this program has been so near and dear to my heart, to be able to empower our community with information for leading healthy lifestyle habits. Our outreach is based on 101 nutrition education for families, adults, and youth. I treasure my time engaging people about the simple start technique of the USDA MyPlate way. If you haven’t signed up for one of our series of nutrition classes, I urge you to do so. There is no cost and free to all Pima County residents. I was born and raised on a farm and agriculture and physical activity seem to go together well, so in our nutrition classes we add a physical activity and movement section to each class. I cannot wait for you to meet my powerful, engaging, and devoted team of Instructional Specialist.
