Office of Nutrition and Active Living (SNAP-Ed)

Every community should have what they need to be healthy and thrive.

We help communities break down barriers and improve access to healthy food and ways to be active.

  • Do more with increased capacity.
  • Strengthen community voices.
  • Create sustainable, lasting changes.

Our team’s vision is fair and just access to well-being for every community. 

When it comes to advocating for change, low-income communities face more challenges and unequal access to resources.  
We understand communities can reach their health goals in ways that are right for them. 

Our focus areas

Many things affect our health, well-being, and quality of life.
These are called “social determinants of health”, or SDOH.
Our team works in these three SDOH focus areas.

We collaborate with

  • Community Health Centers
  • Early Childcare Providers
  • Farmers
  • Food Retailers
  • Local Government
  • Neighborhood Associations
  • Non-profits
  • Public Housing
  • Schools
  • Youth Groups
  • ...and more!

Communities We Serve

We are funded by a USDA grant through AZ Health Zone to support low-income communities.

The ONAL (SNAP-Ed) team serves 5 communities in Maricopa County that meet certain requirements.

Here's how you can get personalized support from our team. 

  1. Connect with us. We would love to hear from you! Contact us and we can schedule some time to understand your goals. 
  2. Let's develop a plan together. We work with you to identify barriers your organization or your community is facing. We can provide customized resources, education, tools, and more.  
  3. Make an impact. With a customized plan and extra support, you can more easily reach your goals of helping your community members live healthier lives. 

We Can Work Together to Help People Live Healthier Lives

Unequal access to resources shouldn’t keep you from building a healthier community.

We help our partners identify barriers and create sustainable changes that make healthy food and ways to be active more accessible.

So that you can have the greatest impact possible in helping your community members live healthier lives.
