SNAP-Ed

Why?

We are teaching people in the community how to make healthy food choices easy and affordable. This helps families shop, cook, and eat food to make their health better and keep it that way.

What is SNAP-Ed?

SNAP-Ed is nutrition education for people struggling to make healthy food choices on a budget.  SNAP-Ed also teaches children about choosing more fruits and vegetables.

What do we do?

Maine SNAP-Ed offers many free programs and classes to children, adults, families and older adults. Classes are fun and engaging, led by trained nutrition educators. We offer tasty food samples and recipes to take home.
