Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) is a federally funded program available in all states. SNAP-Ed in North Dakota, known as the Family Nutrition Program (FNP), is provided through NDSU Extension. FNP helps limited-resource families:

  • Make food decisions that support a healthful diet and stretch food dollars
  • Cook nutritious meals and prepare food safely
  • Adopt an active lifestyle

This free program is for youth and adults who are eligible for assistance programs, such as:

  • Women, Infants and Children (WIC)
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • Head Start
  • Free or reduced-price meals
