Try It — You'll Like It!

Everyone can find something to like about SNAP-Ed. Here’s what some of our participants have to say.

I thought it was going to be a chore but really enjoyed and learned a lot. Awesome!!"

— Young mother from St. Louis County, a self-described picky eater

"I've learned how to stretch my money for food. I've also learned how to cook quick and good tasting meals. I learned to eat some foods from each of the food groups...I know that it's better to eat food that is colorful and has variety from each group. I really enjoy these classes and had a lot of my questions answered."

— Isanti County mother
