Curriculum Fidelity

Teaching SNAP-Ed approved curriculum with fidelity is a requirement of the SNAP-Ed program. We have developed tools and trainings to help everyone deliver direct education with fidelity. We hope you will find them useful as you plan and implement SNAP-Ed programs across the state.

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.

We look closely at the curriculum the state has selected to see how, as a program, we are following the lessons as written. We know when this is accomplished the likelihood of behavior change for the families we serve will increase.
