When are Lima Beans in Season?
Fruits and veggies are at the core of SNAP-Ed. Many SNAP-Ed programs work in Farmers' Markets and promote produce. Nutrition educators do food demonstrations and hand out recipes. SNAP-Ed also partners with others to bring EBT to more markets. This supports local agriculture and makes produce more available in communities. SNAP-Ed nutrition education classes also teach kids and adults how to eat veggies.
