Eating a good diet is important to staying healthy. UC CalFresh helps children and adults choose a healthy lifestyle by encouraging good food habits and decision making skills. As part of the UC Cooperative Extension, we're helping build and maintain healthy families and communities.

The UC CalFresh Adult Nutrition Education Program provides consumers with information in food and nutrition, food safety, and resource management. No-cost nutrition education classes are available to low-income adults residing in Fresno County.

The UC CalFresh Youth Nutrition Education Program provides support and resources to pre-school through high school teachers in low-income schools to deliver nutrition and physical activity education in their classrooms.

Improving the health of Californians is important to the future of California. A poor diet can lead to serious health problems. Although California grows the freshest fruits, vegetables and nuts in the country, many people don't eat enough of these nutritious foods.

Conditions are always changing, and the ability to adapt to change is a key to success for people, families, and communities. For more on the UC Cooperative Extension's impact visit UC Delivers or read our UC CalFresh County Profile.
