SNAP-Ed at Michigan Fitness Foundation
SNAP-Ed at Michigan Fitness Foundation (MFF), formerly known as the Michigan Nutrition Network, brings together all the local partners who deliver Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) to families across Michigan. SNAP-Ed’s purpose is to address two USDA goals: to help low-income people eat more fruits and vegetables and to move more.
We work with a statewide network of Michigan organizations to provide locally-relevant programming throughout the state, including interactive education and increased access to healthy food and physical activity. Our statewide social marketing campaign, They Learn from Watching You (links to new window), encourages parents to model healthy behaviors for their children and reinforces those messages at the local level. We provide resources, collaboration, and support services on demonstration projects that help local communities develop capacity for sustained, effective impact.
In Michigan, SNAP-Ed reaches more than one million people every year with ideas, inspiration, and encouragement to eat healthier and move more. In the places where we live our lives everyday, SNAP-Ed is a partner who encourages health and wellness at schools, churches, grocery stores and farmers markets, and in the public spaces where we exercise and celebrate our communities.
