Nancy Porter, Family Community Partnership Manager at Macon Program for Progress (MPP) was awarded the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) Golden Star Award during EFNEP’s State Conference on June 23. The Golden Stars of EFNEP are individuals, groups or agencies, both internal and external, who have significantly contributed to the county program. They provide on-going support to help the nutrition program assistant/associate achieve the county program goals.
To be an EFNEP Golden Star, a partnering agency must share in the EFNEP vision, identify with the EFNEP mission, and work collaboratively with EFNEP to achieve shared goals. Porter and Pat Cable, EFNEP Program Associate in Macon County, work together to plan and deliver EFNEP classes to families served by MPP.
