The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or FoodShare in Wisconsin,
Hunger Task Force focuses on two unique SNAP-Ed programs each year to promote healthy choices amongst SNAP-eligible individuals: the Hunger Task Force MyPlate and the Farm-to-School program.
Hunger Task Force’s MyPlate initiative provides individual and group-based direct nutrition education, health promotion, family-friendly educational materials and hands-on activities to teach the pillars of MyPlate. From monthly nutrition education classes to regular samplings at MyPlate food pantries, individuals learn about nutrition, healthy eating and topics like label reading and healthy shopping on a budget.
The Farm-to-School program offers nutrition education to school-age students. During the school year program, approximately 30 third, fourth and fifth grade students from 7 classrooms and 3 schools receive weekly lessons. Each lesson has three consistent components: a nutrition education lesson, a healthy cooking demonstration (with taste-testing!) and physical activity. School year program students also take bi-weekly field trips to the Hunger Task Force Farm during the growing season. During visits to the Farm, students tend to 25 different varieties of fruits and vegetables in the 28-bed school garden and participate in harvesting and hands-on cooking lessons.
