The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Education Program (SNAP-Ed) is a free nutrition education and obesity prevention program serving low-income adults and youth. It is funded by the Food Nutrition Service (FNS) branch of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). SNAP-Ed operates in 52 states and territories, and its focus audience is individuals and families eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly known as food stamps).

SNAP-Ed facilitates voluntary adoption of healthy food and physical activity choices and other good nutrition-related behaviors. In Ohio, SNAP-Ed has developed as a partnership between the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services and Ohio State University Extension.

Champaign, Logan & Clark County SNAP-Ed duties are covered by the SNAP-Ed program assistant from Champaign County. The SNAP-Ed program brings more than $40,000 in federal funds to Champaign County, which is where the program is housed. There are more than 240 programming options reaching more than 280 adults and 1,800 youth directly. Many more individuals are reached indirectly through measures like health fairs or information relayed from classroom participants to their families. Through these measures, significant behavior changes can be noted in several different categories related to the general MyPlate practices, incorporation of more fruits and vegetables, and food safety practices.
