We provide free nutrition education classes to SNAP eligible families in Georgia. With three different ways to learn; Food Talk, Food Talk: Better U, and Food eTalk, there’s a class for everyone! The University of Georgia SNAP-Ed program provides these resources through the University of Georgia College of Family & Consumer Sciences & UGA Extension.

Our flagship program consists of six one hour classes. These classes are comprised of an interactive nutrition education lesson full of hands-on activities and a delicious recipe demonstration. Participants will receive free educational extenders that will help them implement the skills demonstrated in class into their daily lives. At the end of our program, participants will graduate with a certificate from The University of Georgia and a cookbook that includes all the recipes from the series and more!
Food Talk: Better U
Similar to Food Talk, Better U is a four-week program with classes lasting an hour and a half. This program is centered around helping participants come up with easy ways to make small changes that will lead to a Better U! Each class has the nutrition education lesson and recipe demo, and also includes about 20 minutes of light physical activity to help get people up and moving in a fun, safe way.
Take your learning on the go! With our online classes, participants can log on through our website or even access the lessons on their smartphones. This includes all six sessions of our original Food Talk series and each lesson only takes about 10 minutes to complete. Participants who complete the online series can contact their local Extension Office to pick up their extenders and graduation certificate. To get started vist Food eTalk
