SNAP-Ed Practitioner Stories

SNAP-Ed Practitioner Stories

These stories show how SNAP-Ed Agencies have used the SNAP-Ed Evaluation Framework in their programs. Each agency has its own way of using the Framework to measure the impact of their SNAP-Ed program. The stories describe:
• Statewide evaluation and reporting systems
• How to measure specific indicators
• How the Framework helps agencies communicate program evaluation results to stakeholders


The collection of stories is constantly growing. If you would like to share how your agency uses the Framework, please email your story to snap-edconnection@fns.usda.gov. Use the tip sheet (PDF|17KB) to write your story.
