The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Education Program (SNAP-Ed) is a free nutrition education program serving low-income adults and youth in Ohio.

This program is funded by the Food Nutrition Service’s (FNS) branch of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). In the state of Ohio, SNAP-Ed has developed as a partnership between the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services and Ohio State University Extension.

SNAP-Ed programming focuses on:

  • Diet Quality including promotion of Physical Activity

  • Food Safety

  • Food Resource Management

What Do Participants Learn?

Participants learn to select fruits and vegetables, whole grain, and low-fat dairy products for a healthy diet; to use limited resources to plan, purchase and prepare food for the family; to be physically active every day; and to store and handle food so it is safe to eat.

Our Goal is to Improve the likelihood of families and individuals who are eligible for SNAP to make Healthy Food Choices within a Limited Budget and  to Choose Active Lifestyles.
