The Institute for Community Health Promotion/Learning, Engagement and Development Services (ICHP/LEADS) of SUNY Buffalo State conducted a study on the Effectiveness of Food Preparation Demonstrations during the summer of 2019. The study was sponsored by the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA). OTDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education Project (SNAP-Ed.) provides food preparation demonstrations to teach SNAP-Ed. recipients how to make low-cost recipes featuring fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products.

The purpose of the study was to examine whether the food preparation demonstrations are cost efficient and effective in promoting healthy food choices and evaluate how well the demonstrations adhere to guidelines of SNAP Ed.
