Adopting Healthy Habits

The Extension Nutrition Team is thrilled to be bustling with new classes across St. Lawrence County! With a wide variety of lessons, age groups, and environments, educators are continuously rethinking and shaping how to best teach practical nutrition and cooking skills to our community members in the North Country. Our nutrition educators will work with your family according to your specific needs and which program best suites you.

SNAP-Ed Nutrition Programing

As one of its flagship programs, CCE of SLC administers the North Country SNAP-Ed Program which provides research-based educational programs for all ages promoting healthy outcomes for underserved community members including low-income and/or SNAP eligible residents at greatest risk of food insecurity. The primary focus is providing education classes that promote food resource management skills, encourage healthy food and physical activity behaviors, weight management, increasing consumption of nutrient dense foods, and preparing low-cost, nutrient-dense recipes through food demonstrations.

Educators strive to provide information on healthy eating on a budget, meal planning, exercise, and more! Click here to learn more about SNAP-Ed and see if you're eligible!
