The UC CalFresh Nutrition Education program consists of adult, family-centered and youth components. Our staff delivers research evidence based lessons to youth and adults that are centered around improving diet and nutrition related skills. 

Our program collaborates with  partners to address local nutrition and health problems. Some of the key partners include SNAP-Ed Shasta, Growing Local Coalition, Healthy Shasta Movement, Shasta County Grower's Association, and the cities of Redding and Anderson, among many others.

Our program efforts provide essential knowledge and skills that will increase the consumption of healthy foods and beverages, increase food resource management and food security, and promote and support access to physical activity which will lead to healthy lifestyles. Some of our events and activities include:

  • Local Farmer's Market
  • Educational booths and participation in school events including: Parent Club Meetings, Fall Festivals, Health Fairs, Open Houses
  • Educational booths and participation in community events including: STEM Conferences, Farm City Day, Multicultural Health Fairs, Dr. Seuss Day 

The Trinity County UC CalFresh Nutrition Education Program is part of the "Shasta Cluster" consisting of Shasta, Tehama and Trinity Counties.
