Abstract: 

Under the auspices of the Maine Nutrition Network (MNN), nutrition education projects are designed and implemented through collaborative partnerships with various community agencies, organizations and individuals. The goal of MNN projects is to create an environment where Maine adults and youth make informed food and physical activity choices that support optimal health. MNN projects, which are targeted to participants in the USDA Food Stamp Program, include nutrition training and support for teachers, a nutrition social marketing campaign and training and technical assistance for the Healthy Maine Partnerships as they create supportive environments in their communities. MNN also provides Network partners a forum for networking and opportunities to participate in professional development activities.
