Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program LogoWhat is SNAP-Ed?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) is sponsored by the USDA through a contract with the Department for Children and Families (DCF) and implemented by Kansas State Research and Extension (KSRE). Our goal is to provide nutrition education to individuals and families who receive food assistance or who are eligible to receive food assistance.

 

What do we do?

We provide evidence-based, interactive nutrition, and fitness education for families, seniors, and children.

We help those we serve:

  • Enjoy more fruits and vegetables
  • Choose and prepare nutritious meals and snacks
  • Develop budgeting, shopping and cooking skills
  • Use safe food handling, preparation and storage practices

The strength and reach of SNAP-Ed is due, in large part, to the collaborative efforts of Extension and local community agencies and organizations that share a common concern for the welfare of limited resource residents of Douglas County.

Partnering agencies include:

Schools and Libraries
WIC and Local Health Departments
Senior Centers and Congregate Meal Sites
Head Start and Childcare Centers
Churches
Hospitals and Clinics
Food Banks and Pantries
Commodity Food Distribution Centers
Shelters
