SNAP-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education) is the educational counterpart to the SNAP program. (SNAP is known in California as CalFresh, and was formerly called food stamps.) The mission of SNAP-Ed is to inspire and empower underserved Californians by promoting awareness, education, and community change through diverse partnerships to result in healthy eating and active living. This includes the nutrition education efforts described above on this page.
SNAP-Ed services are available to low-income groups, schools, and individuals, as determined by census tract data, free/reduced school lunch rates, etc. Call the Health Promotion office at (805) 781-5564 to learn more.
