Kansas SNAP-Ed Program

Kansas SNAP-Ed, formerly known as the Family Nutrition Program, is a nutrition education program provided at no-cost to Kansas families with limited resources.  The goal of the program is to provide nutrition education to individuals and families who receive food assistance or who are eligible to receive food assistance.  The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) is sponsored by the USDA through a contract with the Department for Children and Families (DCF) and is implemented by Kansas State Research and Extension.

In order to provide nutrition education to individuals and families who are eligible for food assistance, we collaborate with community agencies who share the same audience.  We provide nutrition education to schools in Anderson, Franklin, and Osage counties.  The elementary schools (K-6) we serve include Appanoose, Carbondale, Central Heights, Crest, Garfield, Garnett, Greeley, Lincoln, Marais des Cygnes Valley, Osage City, Overbrook, Sunflower, and Williamsburg.  Other partnering agencies include health departments, senior centers, food distribution centers, farmers markets, food banks, and community centers in all three counties.
