Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education
(SNAP-Ed) also known as Nutrition Education Program (NEP) is a federally funded grant program that supports evidence-based nutrition education and projects for people eligible for SNAP.

SNAP-Ed targets low income families. Our goal is to educate limited resource families with children and SNAP eligible individuals to change behaviors necessary to have a healthy life style, plan nutritious meals on a tight budget, improve food preparation skills, and learn safe food handling practices.

This program offers hands-on nutrition education and focuses on developing new meal plans, cooking skills, buying healthy food, adapting healthy lifestyle habits, better management of SNAP resources, and preparing food in a nutritious way.

HOW TO APPLY


SNAP-Ed programs focus on bettering our community by providing families with the necessary resources to improve their food preparation skills and aid them in changing their life style.
