Meal planning, grocery shopping and budgeting tips are provided in abundance on the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) website. Most documents are .pdf files that can be downloaded and printed and are made available for self use or for use in the classroom.
History of the SNAP-ed Program
The Food Stamp Nutrition Connection was established in 2001, by the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service with the goal of helping Food Stamp Nutrition Educators find the tools and information they need to provide quality nutrition education for low-income audiences.
On October 1, 2008 the Food Stamp Nutrition Connection became the SNAP-Ed Connection.
SNAP-Ed Connection is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service and maintained at the National Agricultural Library’s Food and Nutrition Information Center (FNIC) in collaboration with the University of Maryland.
