The Michigan Farmers Market Association (MIFMA) would like to invite you to a webinar hosted by the Public Health Institute’s (PHI) Center for Wellness and Nutrition: Key Findings from the Michigan Fitness Foundation Farmers Market SNAP-Ed Food Navigator Pilot Project: SNAP-Ed Nutrition Education Programming in Michigan Farmers Markets
PHI worked in collaboration with Michigan Fitness Foundation (MFF) and MIFMA to conduct a formative evaluation of the Food Navigator Pilot Program, a SNAP-Ed nutrition education intervention in Michigan farmers markets.

The intervention included: 1) designated Food Navigators onsite during farmers market operating hours to guide low-income consumers, 2) MFF social marketing messaging featuring Michigan Harvest of the Month™ (MiHOTM), and 3) experiential nutrition education programming in collaboration with SNAP-Ed partners (e.g., cooking demonstrations and food tastings). In this presentation, we will share the mixed-method approach used to evaluate the Food Navigator Pilot and highlight key evaluation findings, including indicators from the SNAP-Ed Evaluation Framework.
