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.
