Shannon Smith Joins OSU Extension Staff in Wood County

The Ohio State University Extension office of Wood County has announced the addition of Shannon Smith to their staff. Miss Smith will be part of the Family and Consumer Sciences Department, with responsibility for implementing the SNAP Education program throughout the county.

SNAP-Ed is a community nutrition program that aims to improve the health and well-being of limited resource audiences across Ohio. This program is funded by USDA’s Food and Nutrition service and is a partnership with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

One of Miss Smith’s primary goals is to build relationships with eligible schools in Wood County, where she will provide specific lesson topics that would include interactive activities and food demonstrations in classrooms. In order for schools to be eligible to receive these free services, their student population must contain more than 50% of students who qualify for free and reduced lunches.

Teachers, parents, and administrators at any of these qualifying school districts may contact Miss Smith by email: smith.11604@osu.edu or by phone: 419-354-9050 to learn how to get this program into their building.
