SNAP-Ed Nutrition Education Program

What is SNAP-Ed

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) is a federally funded program authorized through the Farm Bill and administered by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service.  SNAP-Ed supports obesity prevention and nutrition education through policy, systems and environmental approaches and direct education where community members with limited-incomes eat, learn, live, play and shop.

  • SNAP-Ed provides hands-on, culturally sensitive nutrition education at schools where 50% or more of the students receive free or reduced-price meals.
  • SNAP-Ed collaborates with partners to support access and distribution of healthy emergency food options.
  • SNAP-Ed teaches youth and adults to develop skills and behaviors to select, prepare and consume healthy meals.

Through workshops and community outreach, SNAP-Ed is making a difference.  Check out the impact Clark County and Region 5 have made.
