What is Food $ense? Food $ense is Washington State’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed). It is a hands-on, culturally sensitive nutrition education program available to Washington Basic Food (food stamp) recipients and schools where 50% or more of the students receive free or reduced-price meals. This nutrition education program reaches youth and adults in Snohomish County with information to help families practice healthy eating habits and become more physically active.
Program Highlight: Food Bank Cooking Demonstrations
Have you ever wondered what to do with a daikon radish? Turnips? Beets?
Did you know you can use a peeler to thinly slice zucchini to make ‘zoodles’ for a fun way to add veggies to your meal?
WSU Extension Food $ense helps people learn how to use those veggies, and more, by providing cooking demonstrations and recipes at three food banks in Snohomish County.
