SNAP-Ed aims to prevent or reduce health disparities such as diet-related chronic diseases and obesity in the RI low-income population. The Rhode Island SNAP-Ed plan focuses on improving nutrition and physical activity behaviors, addressing food insecurity and enhancing health-related policies, systems and environments.
