How are we funded?

FoodWIse is Federally funded by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (SNAP-Ed) and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP).

What is SNAP?

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP-Ed) is an evidence-based program that helps people lead healthier lives. SNAP-Ed teaches people using or eligible for SNAP about good nutrition and how to make their food dollar stretch further. SNAP-Ed participants also learn to be physically active.
