Supporting SNAP-Ed Implementation throughout the Southwest

Image for Supporting SNAP-Ed Implementation throughout the Southwest

Through a partnership with the National Network of Public Health Institutes, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention funded the PHI Center for Wellness and Nutrition to create the Southeast Learning Community as a way to support agencies implementing the United States Department of Agriculture Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education (SNAP-Ed) in the Southeast Region of the United States. Participating states include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. The Southeast Learning Community supports SNAP-Ed’s expanded focus on obesity prevention through policy, systems, and environmental change and partnership development.

The passage of the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 reformed SNAP-Ed and provided increased resources to support implementation of effective public health approaches within nutrition education. As funds increase in the Southeast Region, the Center for Wellness and Nutrition continues to provide technical assistance to elevate and advance successful education programs that increase a multi-sector approach through evidence-based interventions.
