The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) education on dietary adequacy and food-related behaviors of participants reached through individual, group, or SuperCupboard methods. The sample consisted of 2,059 participants. Results from this study suggest that the collaborative, learner-centered method of teaching (one-on-one) is the most effective in eliciting educational program impact. Group nutrition interventions do result in positive behavior changes in the participants, however the effectiveness and maintenance of adherence may require additional effort in order for group education to be cost effective.
