About Us

Positive changes in nutrition and physical activity can improve your overall health and reduce your risk for chronic disease. The Southern Tier Region includes Broome, Delaware, Chenango, Cortland, Madison, Onondaga, and Otsego Counties. Our team of experienced nutritionists provide nutrition education to individuals who qualify and/or receive benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in places where individuals eat, learn, live, play, shop, and work using evidence-based curricula.

Our team of skilled educators provide fun classes that are interactive with “hands-on” experiences and discussion. Classes are designed to meet your needs and are tailored to children, adults, and seniors. Lessons also include tips on how to plan, purchase, and prepare healthy meals so that you can stretch your SNAP food dollars. We welcome you to join us for one or more of our free classes or events!
