Public Health – Seattle King County SNAP Ed Program

About Us

Public Health – Seattle & King County (PHSKC) has successfully managed a SNAP-Ed program for 26 years. We have implemented multi-sector, coalition-based community health initiatives that have addressed nutrition and physical activity disparities, and have been nationally recognized for our work in establishing healthy eating standards, spearheading policy changes such as menu labeling, promoting environment changes such as complete streets, creating systems to increase access to healthy foods, and implementing educational campaigns that discourage the consumption of sugary drinks.
