MAIN PROGRAMS

 

CalFresh

    • All 50 States, the District of Colombia, and the Virgin Islands provide nutrition education for SNAP (called CalFresh in California) and other eligible low-income individuals. The goal of SNAP-Ed 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 current Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate.
      • EatFresh.org - EatFresh is an online resource for CalFresh (Snap, or food stamp) eligible individuals and families but also for anyone who wants to improve their health. The goals for this website include: to encourage cooking at home with fresh food & minimally processed non-perishables, to show users that healthy change happens even though barriers exist, & to better understand the link between lifestyle/diet choices with the prevention of chronic diseases.
