SNAP & SNAP-Ed

SNAP and SNAP-Ed work together to help you make the most of your food dollars. While SNAP Benefits provide extra resources for buying food, SNAP-Ed can help you make the most of those resources. Together, SNAP and SNAP-Ed can help you and your family receive the nutrition you need to live healthy, active lives. Here is how:

SNAP increases the amount of money available to purchase food. SNAP-Ed teaches how to stretch food dollars and make food last longer through cooking, menu planning, and shopping strategies. 

SNAP increases the ability to purchase healthier foods. SNAP-Ed teaches basic nutrition to encourage healthier food choices.

SNAP supports the purchase of food for use and consumption at home. SNAP-Ed teaches how to cook quick and healthy meals on a budget.

SNAP helps make ends meet and decrease the stress of having to choose between food and other necessities. SNAP-Ed teaches how to budget and save money at the grocery store, which helps SNAP Benefits go further.

SNAP encourages better health through increased access to more and healthier foods. SNAP-Ed encourages better health through skills and knowledge development.

    

In Wyoming, SNAP-Ed is taught through the Cent$ible Nutrition Program (CNP) out of the University of Wyoming Extension. CNP covers every county in Wyoming and the Wind River Indian Reservation. All CNP/SNAP-Ed participants receive a free cookbook and kitchen tools. CNP/SNAP-Ed is free to those using or eligible to use SNAP Benefits. Visit our qualify page to find out more.
