The Breastfeeding Initiative Mother-to-Mother Peer program provides mothers with the support and encouragement to provide their babies with the nutritional gold standard that begins their life together. Mother-to-mother peers are moms who have experienced similar scenarios other mothers have been through. Breastfeeding mothers can receive support from a trained peer in their home, at a local WIC office or over the phone, whether it is simply needing someone to talk to or finding a way to make breastfeeding work for them.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Snap-Ed) is a free nutrition education program to reduce hunger and food insecurity and promote healthy eating habits. MSU Extension SNAP-Ed nutrition instructors teach youth, teens, adults and seniors how to make health a priority through an instructional series. The goal of the SNAP-Ed program is to increase the likelihood that those eligible for SNAP benefits will establish healthy eating habits and increase their time spent involved in physical activity, while staying within their limited food budget.
