*NEW* New Interventions in SNAP-Ed Toolkit for FY2020

*NEW* Curriculum & Training 

Friday Forum Survey:

Your CTW Team is planning topics for the FFY2020 Friday Forum Series.  Friday Forums provide opportunities to learn about PSE approaches, and there will be one every other month in FFY2020 starting in October.  Once they get your input about topics the Curriculum & Training team will send out a schedule with dates/times and topics for the year.  The purpose in doing the forums is to create a place where SNAP-Ed providers from across the state can share ideas and learn from each other.

ACTION: Please take a few minutes to complete the survey.  Your input is important!


*Reminder* Evaluation
