The SNAP-Ed Program promotes nutrition education and healthy eating, helping educate our residents and recipients on the benefits of making healthy choices. Healthy eating and proper nutrition is integral to ensuring a healthier community which is key to ending the cycle of hunger.
SNAP-Ed nutrition education messages have been incorporated into Food Bank programs. Our senior citizens attended SNAP-Ed presentations and learned how to make better choices. We promote SNAP-Ed throughout schools, and classes are now coming to the Food Bank for field trips to learn about nutrition. Finally, we add SNAP-Ed materials and recipes to food distribution boxes. The people who receive boxes then have resources about how to cook and process the food the just received.
