UConn School & Family SNAP-Ed offers a variety of resources on our Healthy Family CT website. We provide fact-based food and nutrition information for people who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, or who are eligible to receive SNAP. In addition to fact-based tip sheets, videos and healthy recipes, we also offer the following SNAP-Ed nutrition education learning opportunities.
