The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – plus the Educational Branch (SNAP-Ed) provide eligible groups assistance in developing and implementing strategies, programs, and policies to improve nutrition and increase physical activity. It can also provide practical, hands-on nutrition education to individuals receiving or eligible to receive Washington Basic Food (food stamps) and schools where 50% or more of students receive free or reduced lunches. This nutrition education program reaches youth and adults in Clallam County with information to help participants practice healthy eating habits and choose physically active lifestyles consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and Food Guidance System (ChooseMyPlate.gov).

SNAP-Ed Locations:

We currently serve children and adults at Port Angeles Schools, First Step Family Support Center, and area food banks.
