About Maine SNAP-Ed
Maine SNAP-Ed provides nutrition education services in settings like schools, food pantries, Head Starts and other child care settings, grocery stores, and regional DHHS offices.
This program is made up of over 35 Nutrition Educators and Program Coordinators located statewide. We aim to reach every community within the state of Maine to provide nutrition education to low-income Mainers. Maine SNAP-Ed uses evidence-based curricula and multi-level community-based approaches to help make the healthy choice the easy choice for Maine families. Check out our Facebook page and YouTube channel for wellness and food budgeting tips.
In Maine, SNAP-Ed is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and administered by the Office for Family Independence (OFI) at the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). Programming is implemented through a contract with the University of New England (UNE) in partnership with local community organizations.
