Maryland’s Food Supplement Nutrition Education (FSNE) offers nutrition education programs to help Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) households and those eligible for SNAP. FSNE programs are provided at no cost to support the work of community agencies serving SNAP-eligible individuals and families, such as literacy centers, local food banks, soup kitchens, WIC offices, senior centers, community centers, neighborhood groups, and homeless shelters. Many materials are available in both English and Spanish.
In FY14, FSNE reached more than 33,100 low-income participants and made over 256,000 contacts with those participants over series of nutrition education classes. FSNE educators in 17 counties and Baltimore City spent almost 9,250 hours delivering nutrition education to individuals throughout the lifespan.
