Type of Program

Policy, Systems, and Environmental (PSE) intervention

Years of Program Implementation

2013-Present

Number of Participants

There have been 65,464 unique visitors since launch on 9/30/2013. Eighty percent (53,894) of those visitors are from California.

Target Audience

CalFresh eligible and enrolled individuals and families

Program Evaluation

An impact evaluation on knowledge, attitude, and behavior (KAB) change was conducted from 11/2013-10/2014. No dose-response relationship was found but it did show significant differences in KAB between users and nonusers.

Statistics and Program Impact

71% of EatFresh.org users who are enrolled in CalFresh or another means-tested program have not attended in-person nutrition education classes. This suggests that EatFresh.org is reaching people who would not have access to SNAP-Ed programming otherwise.

EatFresh.org has been integrated into county offices, community-based organizations, food banks, and other agencies across California as a way to support clients in making healthy choices outside of in-person programming.
