Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed)

Last Published: 10/02/2018

SNAP-Ed is an evidence-based program that helps people lead healthier lives. SNAP-Ed teaches people using or eligible for SNAP about good nutrition and how to make their food dollars stretch further. SNAP-Ed participants also learn to be physically active.

SNAP-Ed works by building partnerships with all types of community organizations.  Communities have social marketing campaigns, hold nutrition education classes, and improve their policies, systems, and the environment of the community. SNAP-Ed even addresses local issues like lead poisoning.
