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:

What’s Up Washington SNAP-Ed?

What’s Up Washington SNAP-Ed is the new What’s Up Wednesday! These calls will be every other month and each one will feature a specific topic area. Unlike previous years, this year’s WUW calls will be more “open office hours” structure, where you can come and go as you please if you need support or have questions about specific topics. We encourage you to attend only if you do have questions, as these will be less conversation-driven and more support-driven. Use the link below to join each call when they are scheduled.


Soon, we will announce the remaining dates, times and conversation starters for FFY23 What’s Up Washington SNAP-Ed calls. As with previous WUW calls, the calls will not be recorded. In the meantime, please note the following WUW:

  • November 16, 2022 Recording HERE: Local Food Procurement Grants and Support
  • January 25, 2023 (2:00pm-3:00pm): New SNAP-Ed Curriculum Rubric Support
  • June 7, 2023 (12:00pm-1:00pm): Using FNS Guidance to Inform Your Three-Year Plan
