Curriculum Information & Resources

Curriculum Resources

WA SNAP-Ed tools and resources help you with your work centered on the goals of the SNAP-Ed program: to assist low income families in their understanding of healthy food choices, the importance of physical activity to their health and ultimately a reduction in obesity for the people we serve.


All curriculum used in the WA SNAP-Ed program should be delivered as written. This follows FNS guidance to deliver direct education interventions with fidelity. Any adaptation made should follow guidance for modification of curriculum found in guidance and process documents.  For more information on direct education with fidelity, please visit our training page, also found in quick links.  You will find a short, recorded webinar about curriculum fidelity and why it is important to the program.

Virtual Education

A new virtual education section is added to WA SNAP-Ed curriculum. All curriculum resources were made possible through WA SNAP-Ed educator led workgroups. These workgroups provided hours of time and expertise in the planning and development of resources.

Teaching with fidelity is an important part of our virtual education program.  All educators should teach the online lessons as written.  Each lesson is accompanied with a detailed lesson plan/teaching guide. Please review prior to program implementation.

Scroll down to see the new resources for virtual education during the pandemic. Each curriculum has a page that describes the online resources. Please contact any member of the CTW Team  if you have questions about implementation.

*NEW* Equity Resources

Implementing curricula with equity principles in mind is important to positively impact learners. This new resource guides provides explanations and resources for delivering lessons with an equitable, trauma-informed lens. Resources in this guide can supplement any and all direct education curricula. Access the Curriculum Resource Guide.

The Washington State SNAP-Ed Program has approved a variety of nutrition curriculum for direct education. These include resources for youth, grades K-12 as well as adults. Please follow the links below to find a curriculum fidelity overview, assessment tools and other resources for each of the approved curriculum.
