Video Modules

Faithful Families provides tools to help faith communities to assess their community’s assets, strengths, and needs and develop action steps for policy, systems, and environmental changes.

In partnership with University of Tennessee Extension and the Southern Regional Center of Excellence in Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention (RNECE-South), Faithful Families was featured in a series of video modules that explores policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) approaches in faith-based settings. The modules go over faith community recruitment, support from faith leadership, assessing need, implementation, and evaluation.

These video modules support the Obesity Prevention Interventions and Evaluation Framework in the SNAP-Ed Toolkit. They are housed on the SNAP-ED Interactive Map, which provides a blueprint of PSE approaches in the various settings where we eat, learn, live, play, shop and work.
