TNCEP Adult Programs

We offer several programs for Adults through the Tennessee Nutrition and Consumer Education Program (TNCEP):

The Eating Smart at Home program is offered at different locations such as the Senior Citizens Center, the Templeton Community Center at the Shelbyville Housing Authority and our Extension office.  We also offer this program to agencies that have qualifying groups that are looking for nutrition classes.  Call us if you are interested in attending these classes (usually 6-8 sessions) or setting up a schedule for your group.  We offer this class in English or Spanish.
