SNAP-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - Education)
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (CalFresh) will reduce the prevalence of obesity and the onset of related chronic diseases within the California SNAP-Ed population (< 185 % of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL)) and others eligible for SNAP-Ed. This will be accomplished by educating and providing support to participants to consume healthy foods and beverages, reduce consumption of less healthy foods and beverages, increase physical activity, and improve food resource management skills.
