Introduction to the Curriculum
Young people will also:
- Explore multiple ways to cook healthy meals.
- Gain confidence in different areas of food preparation.
- Learn how toxic stress contributes to poor nutrition and health.
- Practice mindful eating habits.
This series is approved to teach online, older youth, ages 14-21, using “live” VE delivery. This means that SNAP-Ed educators deliver virtual lessons to students during class time. This is the closest method to traditional, face-to face education that requires the least preparation and technical skills. Live lessons allow for the most interaction with students through facilitated dialogue and other techniques.

Around the Table uses the 9th-12 Youth SNAP Happy Survey Tool in most cases.
Please note: The adult survey may be used if all participants are 18 years or older. Please refer to the Evaluation page for more information. If any participants under 18 years, use online 9-12th grade SNAP Happy Survey.
