The Mary Ann Swetland Center for Environmental Health has partnered with The Ohio State University Extension to provide SNAP-Education in Cuyahoga County. 

What is SNAP-Ed?

SNAP-Ed is a free, evidence based nutrition education program serving individuals eligible to receive SNAP benefits or other means-tested federal assistance programs throughout Ohio. The program provides education to help people made their SNAP dollars stretch, learn how to shop for and cook health meals, and lead physically active lifestyles. SNAP-Ed initiatives include nutrition education classes, social marketing campaigns, and efforts to improve policies, systems, and the environment of communities.
