Franklin County Program Coordinator, Danielle Seidita, has partnered with the Community Housing Network to offer SNAP-Ed classes to residents. Community Housing Network is an organization that develops and manages affordable, permanent housing for people challenged by mental health conditions, substance abuse and chronic homelessness. SNAP-Ed hosts on-going classes at all Community Housing Network sites to provide nutrition education and to help participants gain basic cooking skills through hands-on cooking classes. In the above photo are two participants celebrating their completion of the SNAP-Ed program with certificates and Celebrate Your Plate incentives! They said their favorite Celebrate Your Plate recipes they made were the Blueberry Chicken Salad and the Black Bean Brownies!
Celebrate Your Plate is a public health campaign that is here to help Ohioans lead healthier lives by eating more fruits and vegetables. They are an initiative of the Ohio Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - Education (SNAP-Ed). SNAP-Ed helps low-income people around our state make healthy food and lifestyle choices.
