Eat Smart New York

Welcome to Capital Region Eat Smart New York!

You can access useful information about food and nutrition and find out more about our programs. Eat Smart New York (ESNY) Nutrition Education is FREE to all individuals who qualify for and/or receive benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). ESNY provides nutrition education materials and sponsors education events and classes in local communities on a variety of nutrition topics like: healthy eating on a budget, smart shopping for vegetables and fruits, healthy meal planning, basic cooking and food safety skills, weight control and physical activity.

The goals of the Eat Smart New York program are to:

  • Eat more fruits and vegetables
  • Drink less sugar-sweetened beverages
  • Exercise more and balance calories eaten as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Our ESNY program, funded by USDA SNAP Nutrition Education, is part of the Cornell Cooperative Extension system Eat Smart New York program which offers nutrition education through CCE county associations across New York State.
