What is SNAP-Ed?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps people buy the food they need for good health. People also can buy garden seeds with SNAP benefits. SNAP food benefits are put on to the Lone Star Card and can be used just like a credit card at any store that accepts SNAP.

SNAP-Ed is the nutrition promotion and obesity-prevention component of SNAP. A list of SNAP-Ed providers can be found at https://hhs.texas.gov/services/financial/food/snap-nutrition-education.

Training

Civil rights training is required of all individuals involved in all levels of administration for programs that receive federal financial assistance, including full-time staff, part-time staff, consultants, interns and volunteers. The purpose of this training is to inform staff of civil rights related laws, regulations, procedures and directives. SNAP-Ed providers are required to complete a civil rights training annually. The following training was developed by Texas Health and Human Services Civil Rights Office to meet SNAP-Ed civil rights requirements.
