Eat Smart New York

Eat Smart New York (ESNY) helps people with limited incomes learn how to eat better for less money. 

Join us for a FREE one-time workshop-- or a few classes -- that will help you learn to fill your grocery cart and dinner table with healthy and inexpensive foods. Our nutrition educators will meet with you one-on-one or in a group-- in your home or at another place in the community -- to help you learn about cooking, meal planning, healthy food shopping on a budget, nutrition, food safety, weight control and physical activity, breastfeeding and much more.

You’ll learn:

  • to prepare easy, good-tasting, low-cost meals in minutes.
  • to spend less time at the grocery store and buy healthier food with your money and SNAP benefits.
  • to make healthy meals and snacks that children will love
  • to plan meals, prepare and store food safely, and use less salt, sugar, and fat when you cook.
  • to read and understand food labels.
  • to make healthy lifestyle changes part of every day.

Our classes are FREE and the only cost to you is your time. Classes are held in the community like food pantries, senior centers or Head Start locations. Visit our CALENDAR to see where we'll be every day, or call us to find a class near you!

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.
