What is SNAP-Ed?

The NJ Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (SNAP-Ed) is a Rutgers Cooperative Extension program aimed at reducing hunger and preventing obesity by delivering practical information on nutrition, resource management, food safety and increasing physical activity among SNAP eligible adults, families, seniors and youth who receive free or reduced price school meals.

Education is delivered in a series of at least 6 classes presented at your site by our Community Assistant educators who are paraprofessionals trained at Rutgers in the basic nutrition concepts found in MyPlate and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015.
