SNAP Ed Evaluation

The purpose of the SNAP-Ed Evaluation project is to evaluate the ongoing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - Education (SNAP-Ed) Programming in New Mexico. SNAP-Ed funding provides direct education to SNAP eligible populations regarding how to eat healthily on a budget. SNAP-Ed funding is also used to make policy, system and environmental changes that promote healthy eating and increased physical activity. Currently, six programs are funded including CHILE Plus, Cooking with Kids, Kids Cook!, Las Cruces Public Schools, NMSU, and the Social Marketing project. The UNM PRC has been tasked with evaluating these programs. Evaluation efforts have focused primarily on fruit and vegetable consumption, foods available in the home environment, and the effect of adding social marketing to nutrition education. The UNM PRC is also collaborating with the Human Services Division and NM SNAP-Ed programs to evaluate policy, systems and environmental changes.

This project is funded through the USDA, and is subject to The USDA Nondiscrimination Statement. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
