Reaching the Hard to Reach with EFNEP (Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program).
Dunkelberger, J. E.; And Others
Information about the families contacted by the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) who rejected the invitation to enroll in the program is presented. Interviews were conducted with 147 homemakers whose names appeared on a prime contact list prepared from recommendations of local public agencies. Upon completion of the interviewing, program assistants began to contact and enroll homemakers in EFNEP. Enrollment represented 58% of the homemakers on the list. Enrollment in EFNEP was most likely to occur when: (1) the homemaker was either under 30 or over 45 years of age, (2) the family income was less than $3000 and the husband was unemployed, and (3) the family participated in other public programs designed for the poor. It was observed that program assistants were more successful in enrolling homemakers when varied enrollment techniques were used. (Author/PS)
