The State of Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) has been designated by the USDA to administer the State's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) activities.  DSS, in turn, has contracted with UCONN and the CT Department of Public Health to design and implement SNAP-Ed projects.  Nutrition education and obesity prevention are provided for SNAP recipients and other eligible low-income individuals, which focus on building knowledge and skills to help people make healthy choices on a budget and increase physical activity.  The program is evidence-based and consistent with the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate.
