Utilizing SNAP-Ed Funding
As part of an interactive discussion and group activities, attendees learned how Placer County is increasing EBT acceptance at Farmers’ Markets and working with Veterans and Foster Family Agencies on foods access projects, while weaving in policy, systems, and environmental change strategies into county healthy food access objectives. The county also shared how collaboration with the California Department of Social Services and Public Health Institute Center for Wellness and Nutrition has been instrumental in these efforts. Attendees learned how the foundation for these strategies is based on using county SNAP-Ed funding, as well as outlining critical other funding streams to compliment this work.
