EatFresh

EatFresh is an online resource for CalFresh (SNAP, or food stamps) eligible individuals and families, though this website is a great resource for anyone who wants to improve their health. Our goals for this website are:

  • To encourage cooking at home with fresh foods and minimally processed non-perishables
  • To show users that healthy change happens even though barriers exist
  • To better understand the link between  lifestyle/diet choices with the prevention of chronic diseases
