What is ANEP?
The Alaska Nutrition Education Program (ANEP) is a federal/state partnership that supports nutrition education for persons eligible for SNAP benefits or food stamps. ANEP is part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Education Program Education (SNAP-Ed). It is funded by the USDA through Alaska Department of Health & Social Services, Food Stamp Program. The University of Alaska Cooperative Extension Service serves as the implementing agency and provides support for the nutrition educators whose positions are funded through the grant.
The mission of ANEP is to provide educational programs to people eligible for food stamps in order to equip them with the information needed to make healthy food choices within a limited budget. Our program teaches people skills and strategies on how to make healthy eating affordable. The targeted audiences are individuals and families who qualify for food stamps, although receiving food stamps is not a requirement.
About our staff
ANEP educators tailor their programs according to the needs of their community and available resources. All information is research-based from accredited institutions and the USDA, United States Department of Agriculture. Educators offer classes at the sites of partner agencies, local extension office, libraries, schools, grocery stores, and other locations that are convenient and accessible to the target audience.
