Our goal is to educate users of the SNAP
program when it comes to making healthier food choices.

We partnered with UGA SNAP-Ed to solve this problem.

Our Problem

Georgia is currently the 18th most obese state in the U.S. Furthermore, nearly 40% of that obese population can be categorized as low-income, or SNAP eligible individuals. While nutrition assistance helps to get food on the table, it does not account for actually maintaining healthy, balanced diets. Education on healthful eating is vastly important in order to ensure that Georgia can improve the nutritional health of its residents.

Our Partnership

For this project, we partnered with UGA SNAP-Ed to help educate those on SNAP about healthy eating. SNAP, which stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, offers nutritional assistance to low-income individuals and families. While many are SNAP users, few use the educational resources provided by SNAP-Ed, to make smart eating choices.

Our Solution

While SNAP-Ed currently houses most of its information on a website, we wanted to move to a mobile-friendly platform that was more accessible on-the-go. Our team, working closely with SNAP-Ed's (and former NMI grad) Austin Childers, created an app, called SNAP Pea, that functions as a virtual, educational shopping experience to be used alongside actual grocery shopping trips.

We truly believe this app can be a successful means to educating users about healthy food choices throughout their shopping process.
