Region 3 Friday Update for 10/26/2018

Hello SNAP-Ed Friends,
 
Thank you all for the very quick turnaround on your annual reports! We have received them all and are now busy compiling all your fabulous data and stories into our regional annual report, which we will soon share back with you all. Until then, get cozy in your sweaters and galoshes, and settle in for a few regional updates…
 

Resource: SNAP-Ed Community Commons

The University of Missouri has developed a SNAP-Ed Assessment Site where states, policy makers, and the public can access SNAP-Ed indicator data. Over 33 indicators from the national SNAP-Ed framework are available to search, down to the county level, so you can garner reports at the county, multi-county, regional, state and multi-state level . . . even nationally. The site will also create a report (text and graphics) if you wish to do so. Check it out here: University of Missouri’s SNAP-Ed Assessment Site
 

Highlight: Regional Farmers Market Lead leveraging resources to improve EBT redemption rates at farmers markets!

Great work Shannon, we are so happy to have you as our Skagit and Snohomish farmers market lead! More info here: Farmers Market Flash (.pdf)
