Who are we?
Nutrition Education and Community Outreach (NECO) is a student advocacy group that chiefly serves the Food and Human Nutritional Sciences students at the University of Manitoba, and offers knowledge, information and support to the greater University of Manitoba and Winnipeg communities.
NECO's mission is to engage students and community members in the promotion of food and nutrition education through advocacy and improving access to educational materials. In addition, NECO prioritizes professional development opportunities to Food and Human Nutritional Sciences students in order to prepare them for careers in the fields of Food and Human Nutritional Sciences.
Our vision is to foster a culture that values food and nutrition literacy at the University of Manitoba and to see a more food literate, food-secure student body.
