The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education: Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention Grant Program (SNAP-Ed)
SNAP-Ed is a free nutrition education program serving participants and low-income individuals eligible to receive SNAP benefits or other means-tested Federal assistance programs throughout Ohio. Nationally, SNAP-Ed operates in 50 states, plus 2 territories, and targets individuals (youth and adults), and families. SNAP-Ed is funded by USDA's Food and Nutrition Service https://www.fns.usda.gov/and serves in partnership with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services https://jfs.ohio.gov/and Ohio State University Extension. The goal is to improve the likelihood that families and individuals who receive SNAP benefits (SNAP) will make healthy food choices and choose active lifestyles.
