With over 200 community partners, our nutrition advisers teach classes for adults and youth in about 37 Idaho counties. Classes are taught at emergency food sites, food stamp offices, adult rehabilitation centers, public housing sites and schools with high numbers of free and reduced lunch participants.
Eat Smart Idaho is supported by two USDA grants: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed), in partnership with the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare and the United States Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service, and EFNEP (Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program), in partnership with the USDA National Institute for Food and Agriculture.
Last year, lessons were delivered to over 1,100 adults and 3,900 Idaho youth. Would you like to be one of them? Check out our class schedule!
