SNAP-Ed is Washington State’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education. It is a practical, hands on nutrition education program available to Washington Basic Food (food stamp) recipients and schools where 50% or more of their students receive free or reduced lunches. This nutrition education program reaches youth and adults in the Kitsap community 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).
We currently serve students and families in the Bremerton School District through the Fruit & Vegetable Grant and partnering with school staff on incorporating Physical Activity breaks. We are also looking for Farm to School opportunities in this coming year. Parent Newsletter Here!
