Janet McCoughlin runs the Cooking Matters program that has served Virginia families with nutrition education classes… Q: audio 1 nutrition education “Given the size of the investment we’re making in SNAP it only makes sense that we’re investing in the education side as well. So that we can make sure those benefits are used as wisely as possible.” While some critics argue SNAP contributes to obesity, McCoughlin says studies have shown families that have nutrition education make healthier choices. More than 938-thousand Virginians receive assistance through SNAP. (CC)
