Ohio SNAP-Ed

The OSU Extension Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) is a free education program for Muskingum County residents that works to provide participants with the tools and resources to improve their overall health and wellness and, in turn, improve their families’ wellbeing. Through a series of interactive lessons, the program seeks to introduce youth to new fruits and vegetables, teach families how to buy and prepare healthier food, and help low-income families learn how to manage their budgets to buy healthier food options. SNAP-Ed is completed as a series of workshops or lessons, each providing evidence-based nutrition education in alignment with the USDA’s MyPlate guidelines.
