SNAP-ED and Senior Health Improvement and Nutrition Education

In response to the local and national precautions being taken regarding COVID-19, CCE Franklin is suspending public program outreach that is considered non-essential until further notice

Our program educators, in partnership with The New York State Office for the Aging focus on providing SNAP-Ed Nutrition Education for individuals in New York State who are 60 years and older in the form of interactive community workshops, healthy eating resource fairs and food box distributions. These events are currently being offered in 6 different regions in New York State. Franklin County (also covering St. Lawrence and Clinton Counties), Montgomery County (also covering Fulton and Herkimer Counties), Chautauqua County (also covering Cattaraugus and Allegany Counties), Oneida County (also covering Madison and Chenango Counties) Oswego County (also covering Jefferson and Lewis County) and the New York City Region.

Our topic this week is on increasing your fruits and vegetables during the pandemic. To receive this information, all you need to do is call our hotline at (518) 481-3367 and leave a message with your name and number. From there, Dan or Laura will reach out to you and provide you with the message of the week as soon as possible!
