The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (SNAP-Ed) serves limited-resource individuals and families across North Carolina. SNAP-Ed is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture-Food and Nutrition Service and works in collaboration with the NC Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Family and Child Well-Being.

SNAP-Ed works to help participants make healthy choices within a limited budget and choose physically active lifestyles consistent with the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate. We work with partners to provide food and nutrition education to people in need in a way that inspires public confidence and supports American agriculture. 

NC State University’s SNAP-Ed Program is Steps to Health. Steps to Health provides nutrition education programs for preschoolers, kindergarteners, 2nd-grade students, 3rd-grade students, youth after-school and summer nutrition site programs, and adults.

The Steps to Health program is delivered by county-based N.C. Cooperative Extension Agents and community partners across North Carolina.

Partners include the NC Department of Child and Family Well-Being; N.C. Cooperative Extension; State Nutrition Action Coalition (NCSNAC), Eat Smart, Move More, North Carolina; NC Division of Public Health, NC Division of Aging and Adult Services; local health departments; Head Start Programs, schools; and congregate nutrition sites.
