SNAP-Ed Works Evidence shows positive impact of SNAP-Ed

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) plays a critical role in helping people eligible for SNAP lead healthier lives on a limited budget. SNAP-Ed teaches people how to make their SNAP dollars stretch, shop for and cook healthy meals, and stay physically active. Initiatives include direct nutrition education in communities across the country and social marketing campaigns. Since the passage of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, the program also supports policy, systems, and environmental change strategies that promote healthy eating to advance food and nutrition security, reduce diet-related chronic disease, and promote equity.
