SNAP-Ed

Contact the Bureau of Chronic Disease Prevention

What is SNAP-Ed? 

SNAP-Ed is short for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education. This program offers nutrition education to teach families how to make healthy food choices on a limited budget and to be physically active for good health.

SNAP-Ed classes teach behavioral changes such as how to:

  • Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains
  • Drink fewer sugary beverages and reduce sodium intake
  • Increase physical activity levels
  • Maintain appropriate nutritional balance at all life stages

For more information, please visit USDA SNAP-Ed.

Funding 

In 2018, the Florida Department of Health received the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) funding from the United States Department of Agriculture through the Department of Children and Families. The funding is allocated to support county health departments in implementing SNAP-Ed programming.
