SNAP-Ed

Maine's SNAP-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education) utilizes the Healthy Maine Partnership agencies statewide as access points for SNAP-Ed delivery. River Valley Healthy Communities Coalition provides SNAP-Ed to residents towns in our area. The program strives to educate Maine SNAP recipients on low cost, healthy eating and active lifestyles.

The goal of SNAP-Ed is to improve the likelihood that persons eligible for SNAP will make healthy choices within a limited budget and choose active lifestyles consistent with the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate.

Maine SNAP-Ed is funded by the USDA'S Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, which is administered by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and implemented through a contract with the University of New England (UNE).
