Together We Will End Hunger, Malnourishment, and Homelessness

USDA Eat Fresh is an online resource for CalFresh (SNAP, or food stamps) eligible individuals and families, though this website is a great resource for anyone who wants to improve their health. Our goals are

  • To encourage cooking at home with fresh foods and minimally processed non-perishables
  • To show users that healthy change happens even though barriers exist
  • To better understand the link between lifestyle/diet choices with the prevention of chronic diseases

The website features 6 areas:

  1. Recipes
    • Different recipes based on meal type, cuisine, cooking environment, dietary info, step-by-step recipe and specific ingredient or keyword.
  2. Meal Plans
    • Different meal plans which meet different requests are provided: crockpot/slow cooker meal plans, kids-friendly meal plans, low added sugar meal plans, vegetarian meal plans and very quick meal plans.
  3. Discover Foods
    • Questions on a specific kind of fruit or vegetable? Find information on: how to purchase it from your local farmer's markets, tips on storage and cooking, and dietary benefits.
  4. Ask a Dietitian
    • You can submit dietary questions online and be answered by an dietitian or explore the FAQs.
  5. Lifestyle
    • Learn ways to put you and your family on a path to better health.
  6. My Local Resources
