SNAP-Ed teaches people to shop for and cook healthy meals. SNAP-Ed can help people learn how to make their SNAP dollars stretch. SNAP-Ed works with partners to make the healthy choice the easy choice.

The SNAP-Ed Toolkit is a collection of evidence-based interventions. You can search through the different categories and filters to find what you need. This toolkit helps SNAP-Ed Implementing Agencies across the country find evidence-based interventions and explore the SNAP-Ed Evaluation Framework in order to strengthen our impact on our goal to help SNAP-eligible households make healthy eating and physical activity choices on a limited budget.

The SNAP-Ed Evaluation Framework and Interpretive Guide is also available on the SNAP-Ed Toolkit site.
