Kansas SNAP-Ed Program (Spanish)

30 Years SNAP-Ed

The Kansas SNAP-Ed program is supported by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) grant, in partnership with the Kansas Department for Children and Families and implemented by Kansas State University Research and Extension (KSRE).

Kansas SNAP-Ed supports low-income Kansans by making the healthy choice the easy choice through a dual focus on nutrition and physical activity education and partnering with local and statewide organizations to improve polices, systems, and environments that support healthy behaviors.

Kansas SNAP-Ed focuses on preventing nutrition and activity-related chronic disease by empowering low-resource Kansans to achieve healthy lives, improve food security and reduce health disparities.

Through a series of nutrition classes, community-based nutrition educators lead interactive lessons for youth, adults, and older adults across the state to help individuals and families with:

*Easy, nutritious meal planning according to MyPlate

*Stretching limited food dollars

*Increasing physical activity

*Improving skills for safe food handling and preparation

Free Local Classes


The Frontier Extension District is partnering with Hope House to present a nutrition program to the community. There will be four nutrition classes presented on the 4th Wednesday of each month, June - September. These classes are free and open to everyone! Come learn how to create a quick and easy meal, with a new recipe being presented each month. 
For more information or to sign up for these classes, contact Kris Wallace, SNAP-Ed Nutrition Educator, at 785-229-3520 or krwall@ksu.edu
