Overview

Eat.Right.Now. (ERN) is a nutrition education and obesity prevention program led by the School District of Philadelphia and funded by the USDA Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed). Through this partnership, Health Promotion Council and other ERN partners provide nutrition education for students in 80% of Philadelphia's public schools. HPC reaches approximately 14,000 students and 268 caregivers across 20 schools. Our nutrition educators help students identify healthy eating and physical activity options using simple key messages, food sampling, and supportive, interactive activities.

The goal of ERN is to promote behavioral changes related to nutrition and physical activity. HPC uses a variety of strategies to reach program goals, including but not limited to, classroom lessons, garden-based nutrition education, and after-school cooking clubs. Educators focus on topics such as choosing fresh fruit and vegetables, where food comes from, and drinking plenty of water. Lessons and activities align with the USDA’s  Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education Plan Guidance and  Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
