Welcome

As of October 1, 2008, SNAP or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, is the new name for the Food Stamp Program.

SNAP’s nutrition education component, SNAP-Ed, is administered through the University of Rhode Island Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences. URI SNAP-Ed is designed to empower participants with limited income to choose nutritious foods and be physically active for better health and well-being through interactive, science-based lessons and activities.

SNAP-Ed Key Messages

  • Eat fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat sources of calcium daily for good health
  • Be physically active daily
  • Balance calories in with calories out for a healthy weight
  • Healthy foods can fit all budgets

All families want good health. The disproportionate share of chronic illness and health care costs experienced by low-income families can be addressed by offering simple, low-cost ways to achieve wellness. Explore our program activities and educational materials using the links to the left, and contact SNAP-Ed at 1-877-Food-URI for more information.
