Nutrition Education

UT Extension - Family and Consumer Sciences Logo
We offer two Nutrition Education programs in Hamilton County, both focusing on teaching families and individuals how to prepare healthy meals on a budget.

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Logo

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Education Program provides nutrition education and obesity prevention education for persons eligible for SNAP benefits. Using a series of hands-on lessons, the program teaches clients about good nutrition and how to make their food dollars stretch further, as well as how to be more physically active. Participants learn to shop, cook and eat on a budget.
