FreshLink Cleveland Training August 12
How can resident ambassadors help connect Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) customers to local farmers' markets? The PRCHN's core research, FreshLink, has been sharing its evidence-based community ambassador model through a national webinar and trainings in Columbus and Tucson. The final training of 2019 takes place August 12 in Cleveland. In addition, the full complement of training materials is available online as a toolkit to assist other communities or organizations interested in implementing similar programs.

FreshLink Ambassadors are community champions who provide their neighbors with a social connection to local resources to raise awareness of healthy food options and SNAP incentive programs. The trainings will take participants through the steps necessary for organizations to create their own ambassador program and facilitate increased SNAP use at local farmers' markets.

The FreshLink Ambassador toolkit is designed to support the implementation of the FreshLink Ambassador model in diverse community settings. The Toolkit includes four components that are designed to be used together: FreshLink Facilitator Manual, FLA Training Curriculum, FLA Workbook, and FLA Employment Handbook. The FLA Toolkit is based on lessons learned from the FreshLink Ambassador model developed and implemented by the PRHCN between 2014 and 2018.
