Maryland SNAP-Ed

The Maryland Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP-Ed) is a nutrition education program that targets individuals and families eligible for SNAP (EBT).  SNAP-Ed educators in Charles County provide resources to help people lead healthy lives through increased food access and improved overall health through nutrition and physical activity.  SNAP-Ed partners with community organizations to change the policies, systems, and environments of those sites and offer education programs to support positive changes in those communities.

SNAP-Ed programming reaches participants in a variety of ways including:

  •  Classroom-based, in-person nutrition education for youth, which features tastings and food preparation opportunities.

  • Face-to-face education for parents/caregivers to encourage healthy role modeling and healthy food preparation at home.

  • Onsite gardens and gardening for nutrition programs, which encourage the use of locally-produced foods for tastings, snacks, and meals.

  • Worksite wellness interventions for teachers/staff.

Key partners in Charles County include:

  • C. Paul Barnhart Elementary School
