Nutrition Education

In partnership with Florida Nutrition Ed, Second Harvest offers nutrition education classes to help SNAP-eligible Florida residents incorporate more nutritious foods into their diet, adopt an active lifestyle, prevent chronic disease, manage a healthy weight and improve their quality of life. The program provides free nutrition education classes in Brevard, Lake, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, and Volusia counties.
