The SNAP-Ed goal 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 and the USDA Food Guidance System, MyPlate. SNAP-Ed initiatives are funded by the USDA’s FNS through a partnership with the Clemson University’s Youth Learning Institute (YLI). 

Nutrition Education Initiatives

Our goal is to create healthier communities through evidence-based interventions focusing on healthier eating habits and physically active lifestyles.  We promote healthy lifestyles, especially among at-risk groups at most risk for chronic disease.  For qualifying locations, all age groups in the community can be included. 

Types of Programs Available:

  • Cooking Demonstrations and Taste Tests
  • Cooking Classes to learn how to plan and prepare healthy meals at home
