About Us

Cornell Cooperative Extension is dedicated to strengthening families and communities in the Southern Finger Lakes region with the SNAP-Ed program, a statewide initiative. The Southern Finger Lakes SNAP-Ed region includes Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, Tompkins, and Yates counties. Our team is made up of 13 staff with experience in nutrition, public health, health education, and culinary arts. Individuals who qualify for and/or receive benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) may participate in our free events.

We support families receiving SNAP or are eligible for SNAP to:

  • Increase consumption of nutrient dense fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and low-fat dairy products
  • Decrease consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages.
  • reduce consumption of low nutrient, high energy dense foods containing large amounts of added sugars, salt and saturated fats
  • Increase physical activity and reduce sedentary behavior
  • Improve food resource management skills
  • Improve food preparation skills
  • Increase access to affordable and nutritious foods

Upcoming Events

Our team provides free workshops, food demonstrations, cooking classes, grocery store tours, and community events for individuals who qualify for SNAP. We also work with families and other community partners to improve access to affordable, health foods, and fun physical activities.

SNAP-Ed is funded by USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
