The goal of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) in Nevada is to improve the nutritional well-being of people who receive SNAP benefits and other Nevadans with a low income through community based education, programs and needs assessments.
We work with the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services to ensure that people who receive SNAP benefits learn how to best use them to purchase foods that will provide the most nutritious choices and the greatest value. Nationally and in Nevada, SNAP-Ed programs have proven to be worth the investment. In Nevada, SNAP-Ed funds help support several of our educational programs designed to teach good nutrition and the importance of exercise to Nevada families.
SNAP-Ed uses science-based, behaviorally focused interventions and can maximize its national impact by concentrating on key outcomes which focus on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines.
