Clallam & Jefferson Counties WSU SNAP Ed Program

About Us

WSU Extension SNAP-Ed has delivered programs in Clallam and Jefferson Counties for nearly a decade. We currently focus on Policy, Systems and Environmental work that strengthens regional supply chains for our local farms, while making farm-fresh produce more available to SNAP-Ed audiences. We work across the food system- in places where people shop, get well, learn and live, to remove barriers and empower community members to access healthy food.
