Virtual Nutrition Education


The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education Program (SNAP-Ed) helps people with limited incomes learn how to eat better for less money. It is a free, confidential nutrition education program to help you and your family manage your food resources during tough economic times.

Join us for a FREE one-time workshop-- or a few classes -- that will help you learn to fill your grocery cart and dinner table with healthy and inexpensive foods. Our nutrition educators will help you learn about cooking, meal planning, healthy food shopping on a budget, nutrition, food safety, weight control and physical activity, and much more.

You’ll learn:

  • to prepare easy, good-tasting, low-cost meals in minutes.
  • to spend less time at the grocery store and buy healthier food with your money and SNAP benefits.
  • to make healthy meals and snacks that children will love
  • to plan meals, prepare and store food safely, and use less salt, sugar, and fat when you cook.
  • to read and understand food labels.
  • to make healthy lifestyle changes part of every day.

Our classes are FREE and the only cost to you is your time. Classes meet throughout the community and over the internet in partnership with organizations like food pantries, senior centers, or schools. Visit our CALENDAR to see where we'll be every day, or call us to find a class near you!
