Aiming for a healthier Minnesota where everyone can thrive

Extension nutrition educators improve lives through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) program. SNAP funding is authorized through the farm bill.

"We emphasize the importance of being proactive—not waiting until costly chronic health problems set in," says Mary Caskey, Extension's SNAP-Ed associate program director.

By joining forces with partners, Extension changes society for the better when it comes to nutrition:
