SNAP-Ed Toolkit and SNAP-Ed Connection: Overview and Linkages
|Overview||The SNAP-Ed Toolkit provides:
||The SNAP-Ed Connection provides:
|How Content is Added||Interventions: Intervention developers submit direct education, policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) change, and/or social marketing interventions using a standardized submission form (FNS 886) annually. Peer reviewers assess each submitted intervention using a standardized scoring tool (FNS 885) to ensure the intervention is appropriate for SNAP-Ed and demonstrates enough evidence of effectiveness. Selected interventions are categorized as emerging, practice-tested, or research-tested. Interventions are updated annually to ensure content is relevant and current.
Training and Technical Assistance: Content is submitted to the Toolkit team and reviewed for fit and rigor. Additionally, content is created by the Toolkit team or co-created with other stakeholders to fill identified gaps or needs in training and professional development.
|SNAP-Ed Library: The Library aims to contain all SNAP-Ed developed materials (current and historic) and serves as a repository for materials and resources developed with SNAP-Ed funding. Submission form allows for a year-round open submission process via email and SNAP-Ed Connection staff members review submissions using specified inclusion criteria. Typically, materials developed by SNAP-Ed State or Implementing Agencies are included unless they are not compatible with SNAP-Ed Guidance. Criteria for non-SNAP-Ed organizations are more rigorous and require a value-added component. All interventions in the Toolkit are eligible for Library inclusion.
Success Stories: SNAP-Ed Implementing Agencies are encouraged to write success stories about their programs and submit them to their FNS Regional Coordinator. The stories are carefully reviewed for readability and impact by multiple FNS and SNAP-Ed Connection staff prior to being posted on the website.
