Health and Nutrition

Health and Nutrition Services programming, aimed at improving the health and nutritional status of children, families and seniors, began in 1982 with the implementation of the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and expanded to include a number of programs to complement and enhance these services. All program services are free to those who qualify and meet the income guidelines.

Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC): Are you pregnant, breastfeeding or a new mother? Do you need additional free nutritious foods for yourself or your infant or child under age 5?  Would you find it helpful to receive nutrition information, health screenings and referrals or support for breastfeeding? 

Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP): Do you need additional foods to supplement your diet?  Are you a senior 60 years of age or older? 

Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP): During the summer months senior participants enrolled in the Community Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) program are provided with fresh fruits and vegetables.

The Summer Foods Service Program (SFSP) will be providing meals for kids during the summer months:

Boasting the slogan “Food that’s in when school is out” SFSP provides free meals to youth during the summer months. SNHS sponsors over 20 meal service locations in four cities and towns across two NH counties. Meals are available at open site locations for the duration of school summer break or during structured summer programming.
