Michigan Nutrition Network
The Michigan Nutrition Network creates innovative partnerships with dozens of organizations across the state in order to reach as many of the state’s SNAP recipients as possible.
The Michigan Nutrition Network (MNN) at the Michigan Fitness Foundation is an Implementing Agency for nutrition education, delivered to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) eligible Michiganders. The program originates at the USDA Food and Nutrition Service and is under the direction of the Department of Human Services in Michigan. Called SNAP-Ed, the program helps SNAP recipients to establish healthy eating habits and a physically active lifestyle and provides primary prevention of chronic diseases.
Goal: To improve eating and lifestyle behaviors as a preventive approach to reducing diet-related health problems.
2013 - 2016 Objective: By September 30, 2016, there will be an increase in the consumption of fruits and vegetables and an increase in physical activity among Michigan residents participating in SNAP-Ed projects as the result of a coordinated education and communication program.
