1. Project Title: School Based Nutrition Education


    1. Objectives.

UCCE program representatives will conduct focus group interviews with at least two groups (7 – 12 per group) of Food Stamp eligible clients by January 2007 to get their preference on the use of graphics and format style of publications.  Two abbreviated publications will be reviewed and rated for readability and ease of use.  We will also seek their input on which topics they need more information on to better use their resources.

 

A series of approximately 10 one-page handouts, on topics requested by Food Stamp eligible clients during focus interviews, will be drafted and formatted by Feb 2007.  Existing UCCE and other government produced publications will be used as the basis of these handouts.

 

The 10 revised handouts will be distributed to at least 150 clients in three FSNEP county pilot-test sites from March – May 2007.  Approximately 20 Food Stamp eligible clients who received the handouts will be asked to participate in a brief follow-up survey (about 10 questions) to determine which handouts they received, which they read, and the usefulness of the publications.


  1. By September 30, 2007, implementation of the comprehensive nutrition and health education program, which incorporates agriculture into the school environment (this includes establishment of a school garden), will expand to 15 FSNEP eligible schools. 

  2. By September 30, 2007, staff and teachers from 15 FSNEP eligible schools will have received training that is coordinated with the Nutrition Competencies for California Children, Pre-Kindergarten Through 12th grade.

  3. By September 30, 2007, Nutrition to Grow On will be updated for inclusion in the comprehensive nutrition and health education program. 

  4. By September 30, 2007, the FSNEP youth website will be updated so that education materials can be down loaded.

  5. By September 30, 2007, the FSNEP youth website will be updated so that evaluation information can be inputed.

  6. By September 30, 2007, the FSNEP youth website will be updated to include a comprehensive list of resources pertinent to a comprehensive nutrition and health education programs that include agriculture.

  4. After four 2-hour classes, at least 60% of program participants will demonstrate an increased readiness to make behavioral changes in food choices, portion sizes or physical activity by advancing 1 step in the stages of change paradigm, based on pre- and post-test questionnaires on stage of change for diet and activity.

  5. After four 2-hour classes, participants will demonstrate on average, at least 2 positive changes in behavior based on food records, questionnaires and physical activity logs.

  6. After four 2-hour classes, goal setting exercises will result in participants making on average, 1 more behavioral change than the participants who do not received goal-setting training.




    1. Audience. Castle Family Health Center, Atwater, California is a rural clinic serving 92% food stamp eligibles (56% Latino, 34% non-Latino white, 10% African American and Asian).




    1. Focus on FSP Eligibles. Approximately 200 food stamp eligible clients.




    1. Project Description. This proposal for a lifestyle change intervention promoting healthy eating habits, achieving a healthy weight and increasing exercise is consistent with USDA food guidelines and Healthy People 2010 goals. The education efforts are targeted toward a multi-ethnic, socio-economically diverse community which has a significant percentage of Food Stamp eligible clientele, and uses proven theory-driven group adult education techniques.
