Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed)

Food $ense is a nutrition education program that teaches youth and adults with limited incomes skills and behaviors to eat healthy and maximize the value of their food dollars and food assistance benefits.

Food $ense partners with community agencies to reach eligible youth and adults, complementing the food assistance programs by working directly with people to provide education that builds skills needed to provide themselves and their families with nutritious, low-cost, and safe food.
