    Food-$ense

    Food $ense is Utah's SNAP-Ed Program. SNAP-Ed is the nutrition education component of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, formerly knows as food stamps. The Food $ense program is offered through Utah State University Extension offices. Food $ense teaches people with limited time and money how to eat well and be active. Our classes focus on teaching participants how to make delicious and nutritious meals from foods they already have on hand.  All the information you will receive in Food $ense classes is based on USDA's nutrition and physical activity guidelines. 

    The classes are free.
