URI SNAP-Ed Nutrition Education

SNAP-Ed is the nutrition education component of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly the Food Stamp Program), which is the largest program in the domestic hunger safety net.

The mission of SNAP-Ed is to teach eligible participants to choose and prepare healthy foods and be physically active on a budget. The SNAP-Ed program at the University of Rhode Island is administered through URI’s Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences. We invite you to look through the many free resources on our site.
