We are excited to announce our Healthy Community Outreach 2020 mini-grant recipients:
🥦Using Food Hero recipes to improve food safety practices, a digital campaign.
Project leader: Mandy Hatfield, SNAP-Ed Douglas County.
This project aims to reach millions of people to increase food safety habits, especially for those eligible for SNAP benefits in Oregon. Objectives include development of food safety tools and messaging around seven food safety practices for the Food Hero Social Marketing Campaign.
🥦Healthy Communities – Teens as Teachers.
Project leader: Barbara Brody, 4-H, SNAP-Ed, FCH Malheur County.
This 4-H/SNAP-Ed Teens as Teachers project will partner with rural, under-served schools in Grant and Malheur counties to train the next generation of nutrition and healthy eating champions who will deliver evidenced-based lessons to youth in elementary schools within their communities.
🥦Walk the Stories.
Project leader: Erin Devlin, SNAP-Ed, FCH Clackamas County
The goal is to reinvigorate the Molalla StoryWalk project by supporting a local champion to repair signage and promote the project in the context of a new opportunity while schools and libraries are closed. During times of social distancing and online learning, the StoryWalks are extremely applicable because they allow for reading in public with adequate space between families.
Congratulations to all of the recipients. We are looking forward to seeing all of the positive influences these projects will have on Oregon communities.
