SNAP-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education) is a federal program funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS). It is the nutrition education and obesity prevention component of SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). The goal of SNAP-Ed is to improve the likelihood that persons eligible for SNAP will make healthy food choices within a limited budget and choose physically active lifestyles consistent with the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
