The Families, 4-H and Nutrition unit of the Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service (CSREES) commissioned this important report documenting the many contributions and the unique opportunities of the 1890 Land-Grant Universities (LGUs) to deliver Food Stamp Nutrition Education (FSNE) (currently known as the Supplemental Nutrition Education Program - Education (SNAP-Ed)) as an Extension program highlights the rich history of the 1890 community to address critical issues facing limited resource families. This report can serve as an important springboard for exploring new opportunities for the 1890 institutions to deliver community nutrition education. The 1890 institutions continue to be leaders in delivering educational programs to individuals who face poor nutrition and inadequate diets that result in a myriad of health problems including diabetes, hypertension and childhood/adult obesity.
