SNAP-Ed Workshop Descriptions:

Make it Healthy, Make it Delicious!

Eating healthy does not have to mean sacrificing the foods and flavors you love! Learn SMALL changes you can make to your current favorites to kick up the nutrition for you and your family. Learn how to season with less salt and how to pick the right types of fats for your body.

Quick, Healthy Meals & Snacks!

Set yourself up for success! Get tips for stocking your pantry in a way that makes meal and snack prep a breeze. Learn how to save time and save money while still making meals and snacks your family will actually eat, that you can feel good about serving.

Eating Healthy on a Budget: Yes, it can happen!

Unhealthy food is indeed often more accessible and cheaper than healthy alternatives. Unfortunately, it’s these very foods that make us unhealthy and overweight, causing all sorts of INCREDIBLY expensive medical problems down the road. Healthy eating on a budget IS possible, it just takes a game plan and a little creativity.

Make Healthy Eating Practical!

Looking at a Nutrition Fact Label can be tricky and confusing. Understanding the label and finding out what information is valuable to YOU can make shopping and cooking faster and less stressful.
