Better Living for Texans

What is BLT?
Better Living for Texans (BLT) is a nutrition education program for adults and children that are SNAP participants and SNAP eligible.

The BLT program helps people make healthy meals, improve their physical fitness, save money at the grocery store, grow their own foods, and adopt better food safety habits.

BLT Focus Areas:

  • Increase fruit and vegetable intake
  • Increase physical activity
  • Improving access to fruits and vegetables (gardening)
  • Food safety
  • Food resource management (due to high rates of food insecurity)

BLT is a collaborative effort funded by USDA, through Texas Health and Human Commission Services and then sub-contracted to Texas A&M AgriLife for implementation. It is through Extension that you see BLT in action. Lead agents, extension assistants or program assistants will be the professionals teaching the lessons and working side by side with you to meet the nutrition needs of food stamp recipients and their families.
