Matt Stevens, Pitt County CED, welcomed the EFNEP educators and kicked off the meeting with an interactive round of music trivia. Next, EFNEP State Coordinator, Lisa Benavente, shared statewide program impacts, successes, and challenges. Dr. Virginia Stage, NCSU Assistant Professor and Nutrition Educator and Behavior Specialist, provided an overview of current grant funded projects and resources available to EFNEP educators. After lunch, Lynnell Godfrey, EFNEP educator in Pasquotank County, provided information about physical activity and led the group in several line dances that have been popular with her youth EFNEP groups including “Shake it Like a Duck.” Everyone enjoyed having an opportunity to move around and dance together!
