Food Supplement Nutrition Education (FSNE)

Baltimore County’s Food Supplement Nutrition Education (FSNE) offers nutrition education programs to help Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) households and those eligible for SNAP. FSNE provides nutrition education to help low income individuals and families make healthy food choices; develop cooking skills; handle food safely; improve food shopping skills and increase their physical activity.

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. FSNE’s school-based programs reach students, teachers, and parents in low income communities including after-school sites, summer meal programs and public schools where 50% or more students qualify for free or reduced-price school lunch. Child care providers serving low-income families can also receive training for CEUs.

Many materials are available in both English and Spanish.

Programs are available for all ages and a variety of interests:

Youth programs:

FSNE is funded by the USDA in cooperation with the Maryland Department of Human Resources, the University of Maryland, University of Maryland Extension, and COMMUNITY AGENCIES SUCH AS YOURS!
