SNAP and Nutrition Education
Snap Enrollment and Nutrition Education
Access to nutritious food is important for a healthy body and mind. We offer nutrition and cooking workshops and can also help you get enrolled in SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) food benefits so that you can purchase healthy foods.
Outside In’s Nutrition Education Program provides clients with a variety of tools to support healthy eating.
SNAP Enrollment Support
We can walk you through the SNAP enrollment process so that you receive financial assistance with purchasing healthy foods.
At this time all nutrition and cooking education is happening virtually. If you are interested in being added to a listserv to learn about any upcoming nutrition and cooking education events, please contact Emily D.
Food Shopping Education: Navigating the grocery store and food budgeting can be overwhelming. We offer educational trips to the grocery store to explore meal planning, food budgeting, and navigating the store.
Nutrition and Food Workshops: We offer discussion-based workshops that cover any topic of interest. Topics have included the difference between organic and conventional food, added sugar, and food marketing.
Cooking Club: This weekly club focuses on building connections over food, sharing recipes, and exchanging cooking and kitchen skills.
As a patient at Outside In, the dignity, compassion, and respect that I was shown by staff truly had a lasting impact on me and directly resulted in me wanting to get involved in helping my community.
Housing at Outside In is so much more than a roof over your head. The staff is helpful and amazing. They were always there for us anticipating our needs. Finally, we weren’t hungry anymore and we were safe.
I feel safe at Outside In. I love Outside In people. How they love us, care for us. The wonderful and fresh food, the health care, the accommodations, the hospitalities. People talking to me, listening to me. Changing lives. It is a great moment.
