Training Live, Recordings, Tools, Guidance, and Process



The Washington SNAP-Ed program is committed to a statewide training program for all staff involved with SNAP-Ed. Each year we conduct in person and web based training on topics pertaining to curriculum, Policy, Systems and Environment (PSE) work, current topics in nutrition, food safety and more.

Our work is 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.

DSHS has directed your CTW Team to plan and implement the statewide training program.  If you have suggestions for upcoming training, please get in touch with us.  Simply send us a message at:
