SNAP PROGRAM

undefined

Call and arrange to partner with our staff to bring income-eligible clients who qualify for and/or receive benefits through the SNAP Program.

Choose a one-time lesson or a series of lessons led by a trained community educator at ours or your location or at another community site.

ONE TIME PROGRAM FOR ADULTS: Includes (1) one - 45-60-minute session for a group organized by your agency on one of the following topics:

  • Making MyPlate Great
  • Fat, Sugar, and Salt (Nutrition facts label)
  • Vary your Fruit and Vegetables
  • Go for Whole Grains
  • Healthy Eating on a Budget
  • Power Up (Physical activity)
  • Right Size your Portion

GROUP SERIES: includes multiple lessons and topics with a nutrition program educator at your location, or in another community setting.

Participants learn about nutrition, meal planning, healthy food shopping on a budget, cooking and food safety, and physical activity, and much more. The program is based on increasing positive health behaviors. Key messages of the program include:

  • Increasing fruit and vegetable intake
  • Increasing physical activity
  • Decreasing sugary beverage consumption

On the left of the page, eligibility is fine but ESNY with link needs to be taken out. Could put the new SNAP link again if you want.

How to request a program: Please contact and ask to make a referral to the nutrition education program with Betty Clark at 607-334-5841 (extension 1132).
