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.

Fidelity

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.

Curriculum Rubric

The curriculum rubric is a tool available for all LIAs to evaluate available WA SNAP-Ed direct education curricula and to determine which one is best for their specific programming. More information and downloadable materials are available at the page below.
