SNAP Education

The goal of SNAP-Ed is to improve the likelihood that persons on SNAP or eligible for SNAP-Ed will make healthy food and lifestyle choices that prevent obesity.  SNAP-Ed fulfills this goal by working through UGA Extension to combine federal, state, and local resources to effect positive social change.

If you have never rented or owned a home, then it is a good idea to take an education class. We also offer classes, trainings, and workshops for Financial Literacy, and Budgeting.
