Eat Smart Idaho is an evidence-based program that teaches low-income families and individuals about good nutrition and how to make their food dollars stretch further. Community nutrition advisors teach classes to adults and youth in Idaho counties throughout the state. Participants learn quick and easy ways to prepare healthful, delicious meals. Eat Smart Idaho is supported by two USDA grants: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed), in partnership with the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare and the United States Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service, and EFNEP (Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program), in partnership with the USDA National Institute for Food and Agriculture.
Eat Smart Idaho is intended to serve SNAP participants, low-income individuals eligible to receive SNAP benefits or other means-tested Federal assistance programs, and individuals residing in communities with a significant low-income population.
