Collective impact through Pennsylvania SNAP-Ed

With SNAP-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Education Program- Education), we collaborate with school leaders to reach wellness goals with evidence-based hands-on cooking classes, school garden curriculum, fruit and vegetable promotion, and movement break training for faculty.  Workshops are also available for families and caregivers at our schools.

As a contracted local partner of Pennsylvania SNAP-Ed,  we aim to improve the likelihood that families eligible for SNAP benefits can make healthy food choices within a limited budget.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider. This material was funded by USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) through the PA Department of Human Services (DHS). To read the full non-discrimination statement,  click here.
