Whatcom County WSU SNAP Ed Program

About Us

WSU Whatcom County Extension SNAP-Ed, previously known as “Food $ense”, has provided hands-on nutrition education in Whatcom County since 2004. We are a community nutrition education program for low-income households. Serving approximately 12,000 Whatcom County residents, WSU Whatcom SNAP-Ed reaches older youth, adults, and families with limited incomes to develop skills and behaviors to eat more healthfully and be more physically active. Our focus is to support and encourage healthy food choices, increase equitable access to foods for all community members and their families.

Washington State University Extension.
