CalFresh Healthy Living UC

As a core Community Nutrition and Health statewide program, the CalFresh Healthy Living, University of California program (CFHL, UC) offers comprehensive evidence-based nutrition and physical activity education, aligned with changes to the surrounding community context known as “policy, system, and environmental change efforts” in early childhood centers, schools and community environments.

Services are provided in 34 counties with 1,600 volunteers known as “extenders” (trained teachers, afterschool staff, community members). The majority of CFHL, UC participants are preschool and school aged youth and their families. The CFHL, UC program also works with SNAP-Ed eligible adults, seniors, and other priority populations.

By aligning community education with policy, systems and environmental change strategies, CFHL, UC creates long-lasting community impact.

CFHL, UC is federally funded by the United States Department of Food and Agriculture as part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program’s Education network (SNAP-Ed) across the country.
