Della Hicks, EFNEP Program Assistant from Pasquotank County was recently awarded the Minnie Miller Brown Award at the North Carolina EFNEP Multi State Nutrition Assistants Conference in Charleston, West Virginia. The Minnie Miller Brown Award recognizes Program Assistants for meeting the needs of limited resource audiences through innovative teaching methods to produce program results and make a community wide impact.

The Minnie Miller Brown Award is the highest honor given to a Program Assistant/Associate working in EFNEP. The award is given in memory of Minnie Miller Brown (1922-1995), the state’s first EFNEP Coordinator. Mrs. Brown is remembered with affection for her passion for and commitment to EFNEP. Della Hicks won the award as a result of her exemplary achievements. The Minnie Miller Brown award was presented to Della in recognition of her dynamic outreach (170% of target) and impact she has had on both her participants and the community. Only one award is presented each year making this particular award very prestigious. Della’s engagement with organizations that provide food to those in need such as the Food Bank of the Albemarle and Hunters for the Hungry has resulted in many families not only receiving needed food for their family, but having the knowledge and skills to utilize the foods they receive for maximum health benefit.

The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program, administered by North Carolina Cooperative Extension, provides nutrition education for limited-resources families in Pasquotank County to help them make better choices when planning and preparing meals.
