The UMass Extension Nutrition Education Program (NEP) provides families with the knowledge and skills for healthier eating through research-based nutrition education that makes a real difference. Nutrition education is provided in Boston and the surrounding communities through:

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed)

SNAP-Ed’s mission is to help SNAP participants make healthy food choices and choose active lifestyles within a limited budget. Programs are planned annually with the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA), community agencies, and schools throughout the Commonwealth.  Program activities include workshops, lesson series, and food demonstrations.
