What is SNAP-Ed?

The Kansas SNAP-Ed program is supported by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) grant, in partnership with the Kansas Department for Children and Families and implemented by Kansas State University Research and Extension (KSRE).

Kansas SNAP-Ed supports low-income Kansans by making the healthy choice the easy choice through a dual focus on nutrition and physical activity education and partnering with local and statewide organizations to improve policies, systems and environments that support healthy behaviors.

Kansas SNAP-Ed focuses on preventing nutrition and activity-related chronic disease by empowering low-resource Kansans to achieve healthy lives, improve food security and reduce health disparities.

Through a series of nutrition classes, community-based nutrition educators lead interactive lessons for youth, adults, and older adults across the state to help individuals and families with:

  • Easy, nutritious meal planning according to MyPlate
  • Stretching limited food dollars
  • Increasing physical activity
  • Improving skills for safe food handling and preparation

SNAP-Ed Program Highlight

On May 10, 2024, our SNAP-Ed Nutrition Educator, Sofia D., was able to attend and share what she does with 3 classes at Hillcrest Elementary School PTO! Youth were able to learn about what she studied and how it applies to her current job! She wrapped it up by doing a story time about a hungry little insect!
