Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County’s FSNEP, has undergone a name change from FSNEP to SNAP-Ed. The program’s Community Coordinators have nonetheless been spreading the importance of good nutrition to students of all ages.

What is SNAP-Ed?
The NJ Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (SNAP-Ed) is a Rutgers Cooperative Extension program aimed at reducing hunger and preventing obesity by delivering practical information on nutrition, resource management, food safety and increasing physical activity among SNAP eligible adults, families, seniors and youth who receive free or reduced price school meals. This is accomplished by working with community based agencies, programs and schools. The program is funded by USDA/Food and Nutrition Service through the NJ Department of Human Services.

Education is delivered in a series of at least 6 classes presented at your site by our Community Assistant educators who are paraprofessionals trained at Rutgers in the basic nutrition concepts found in MyPlate and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010.
