Kansas SNAP-Ed, formerly known as the Family Nutrition Program, is a nutrition education program provided at no cost to Kansas families with limited resources. Our goalSNAP-Ed logo is to provide nutrition education to individuals and families who receive food assistance or who are eligible to receive food assistance.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) is sponsored by the USDA through a contract with the Department for Children and Families (DCF) and implemented by Kansas State Research and Extension (KSRE). Programming takes place in 80+ counties through the efforts of County Extension Agents and their assistants.

The strength and reach of Kansas SNAP-Ed is due, in large part, to the collaborative efforts of Extension and local community agencies and organizations that share a common concern for the welfare of limited resource Kansans.

Partnering agencies include:

  • Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas
  • Circles of Topeka, Inc.
  • Exploring Life
  • Heartland Healthy Neighborhoods
  • Papan's Landing
