In cased you missed it, our January Wellness Webinar was Thursday, January 24th. We were honored to be joined by Dr. Lindsey Haynes-Maslow from NC State University to talk about the University's SNAP-Ed Program. This wellness blog includes a recording of the webinar, as well as some important resources discussed during the presentation.
SNAP Education stands for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and serves limited resource individuals and families from across the state of North Carolina. The main goal of SNAP-Education is to assist those eligible for food assistance in their efforts to eat smart and move more.
I encourage you all to take a few minutes to learn more about the SNAP-Ed program by watching the webinar recording below:
SNAP-Ed focuses heavily on nutrition, and could be a great resource for recreation and park professionals to partner and share resources with! As Lindsey mentioned in the webinar, use their website, as well as this page to get in contact with an extension specialist in your area! Evidenced-based nutrition programs can sometimes be a struggle in our field, but programs like SNAP-Ed aim to make it a little easier.
Until next time,
