Abstract

Snap-Ed nutrition education classes and food demonstrations allow for observation and modeling of correct food safety practices. Through the Utah State University’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (SNAPEd), low-income participants completing four or more nutrition education lessons completed a retrospective post/pre behavior questionnaire. Results demonstrated increased intent to follow food safety practices by properly cooking, chilling, and separating food items, as well as properly cleaning food preparation surfaces.
