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 the MNN is to create an environment where Maine adults and children make informed food choices that support optimal nutritional health. Nutrition education projects and activities, which are targeted to food stamp recipients, include nutrition training and support for teachers, nutrition education at farmer?s markets, training and technical assistance for the Healthy Maine Partnerships as they create supportive nutrition environments in their communities and a social marketing campaign to promote nutrition and physical activity and healthy food choices. Partners are also provided a forum for networking and opportunities to participate in MNN sponsored professional development activities.
