We know it’s hard to make healthy food choices on a limited budget, and we know it’s hard to stay active.
SNAP-Ed can help.
SNAP-Ed is a federally funded grant program teaching good nutrition, how to make food dollars stretch further and how to make physical activity a part of your day. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey is pleased to be one of three partners offering nutrition and physical education throughout 12 counties: Atlantic, Bergen, Cape May, Cumberland, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic, Salem and Union counties.
Contact us to bring SNAP-Ed classes to your site! We work with community-based agencies and schools to provide education targeted for all age groups, children through seniors. SNAP-Ed classes aim to reduce hunger and prevent obesity, providing participants with practical information on nutrition, cooking, food safety and physical activity.
We hope to see you at some of our community SNAP-Ed classes and events.
SNAP-Ed is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture/Food and Nutrition Service (USDA/FNS) through the New Jersey Department of Human Services (DHS) in partnership with the New Jersey Department of Health (DOH).
Bring SNAP-Ed classes to your agency or school! Please complete the information to the right, and a member of our SNAP-Ed team will be in touch shortly!
