SNAP-Ed

WSU Pierce County Extension provides school-based nutrition education programs designed to provide limited income families with the knowledge and skills to include healthy foods and activities into everyday life. SNAP-Ed teaches youth in low income schools, and adults in community based settings, to identify healthy patterns of eating and physical activity through interactive activities and teaching simple food preparation skills.

 

 


SNAP-Ed is funded by USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program provides nutrition assistance to people with low income. It can help you buy nutritious foods for a better diet. To find out more, 1-877-501-2233. http://foodhelp.wa.gov/
