California Department of Public Health
Part of the SNAP-Ed Strategies & Interventions Toolkit.* The Fruit, Vegetable and Physical Activity Toolbox for Community Educators (Toolbox) is a direct education and social marketing intervention designed to reach African-American women through nutrition education to increase consumption of fruits and vegetables and physical activity (PA) and empower women to overcome barriers to achieving these goals at the personal and community level. The Toolbox Kit and companion Web site were created so that community educators can easily teach low-income adults about eating the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables and enjoying PA every day.
