Description:

The Supplemental Nutrition Education Program Education (SNAP-Ed) is nutrition education that is available to SNAP recipients and other limited-resource individuals and families. SNAP-Ed focuses on nutrition education and obesity prevention in an interactive, evidence-based, and behavior-change focused format.

Across Illinois, SNAP-Ed is provided through University of Illinois Extension. In Cook County, Snap-Ed is also provided in partnership with the Chicago Partnership for Health Promotion at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Who Does SNAP-Ed Serve?

SNAP-Ed provides educational classes and partners with community organizations to reach residents in need of our services. Classes are provided at community locations that are natural places where people go on a regular basis.

Seven Focus Areas for Programming Include:

  • Schools
  • Childcare Centers
  • Youth Centers
  • Community Centers: Programs for Adults
  • Food Distribution Sites
  • Farmers Markets/Grocery Stores
  • Faith-based Sites
