Whatcom County WSU SNAP Ed Program

About Us

WSU Whatcom County Extension SNAP-Ed, also known as “Food $ense”, has provided hands-on nutrition education in Whatcom County since 2004. Serving approximately 12,000 Whatcom County residents, our focus is to support and encourage healthy food choices by teaching nutrition to elementary youth and older youth in high school, pregnant and parenting teens, Spanish-speaking adults, parents of young children, and senior citizens, as well as at county food banks and pantries. This year look for us at farmers’ markets!
