Overview

Nutrition for Life (NFL) provides direct nutrition education services to low-income children, adults, and seniors living in Philadelphia and Montgomery counties who are eligible to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly known as Food Stamp benefits).

NFL uses evidence-based, comprehensive approaches to improve the likelihood that low-income families on a limited budget want and are able to make healthier food and physical activity choices, consistent with the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate.gov. Nutrition education services are offered in group classes, individual one-on-one sessions, cooking demonstrations, and food tastings.

Through NFL, HPC reaches approximately 3,000 adults and seniors annually in a variety of community settings including health centers, supermarkets, food pantries, public housing sites, and senior centers.
