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.
Eat Better, Move Better
Direct education through classes using approved evidence-based curriculum in various SNAP-Ed eligible sites for individuals over the age of 60.
Free sessions include a nutrition discussion to learn ways to EAT BETTER and be healthy, and functional exercise demonstrations to MOVE BETTER and maintain independence.
