SNAP-Ed programming focuses on:
- diet quality, including the promotion of physical activity
- food safety
- food resource management.
The dissemination of nutrition education is mainly achieved by classes. The format of the classes varies from a single session to a series of sessions. In addition, those who receive food assistance benefits may learn about SNAP-Ed and nutrition from newsletters and fact sheets, basic food and nutrition demonstrations at local health fairs and community events, and radio or television public service announcements. Programs may be at adult education and job training sites, adult rehabilitation centers, churches and faith-based locations, community centers, elderly service sites, emergency food assistance sites, OSU Extension offices, farmers markets, Supplemental Nutrition/Food Program offices, Head Start program sites, homes, libraries, community health centers, public housing, schools, shelters, WIC, and work sites.
