Napa CalFresh Healthy Living


CalFresh Healthy Living (SNAP-Ed) in Napa County is a program dedicated to fostering healthy, active, and nourished lifestyles. Through education on good nutrition and budget-friendly meal planning, we empower individuals to make healthy choices, all while stretching their food dollars. We believe that creating a healthier community starts with building partnerships and making the healthy choice the easy choice.

To achieve our mission, we collaborate with various organizations and community stakeholders. Our efforts extend to schools, parks, recreation centers, farmers markets, and food distribution sites, where we engage community members through nutrition education, physical activity opportunities, and community building initiatives. By leveraging partnerships and community resources, we strive to make a positive impact on public health. Additionally, we actively seek out opportunities to collaborate on policy, systems, and environmental changes that support and promote a healthier community for all.

So far, one elementary school has successfully piloted a walking school bus, and we are still piloting more at the other elementary school sites.

We had facilitated two Spanish focus group with community members to gather insight to help shape this project. More updates to come soon.

Food and Beverage Policies

These policies are being written up and will be shared with the School Districts in Napa and implemented at various sites.

Calistoga Elementary School Garden

The garden conversation with the elementary school has just been initiated. The elementary school is in the process of having internal conversations after we presented possibilities on how to implement and sustain a garden. Garden projects usually take several years, and more is to come. The goal is for the school to use the garden for nutrition and outdoor education. Another goal is for the garden to be used for family engagement and using the edible plants in the cafeteria.



Together, we can make a difference!
