Last month, we all learned about the restructuring of federally funded SNAP-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - Education). This is very difficult news for our nutrition colleagues in Extension.
During this time I'm reminded of the recurring theme from Program Conference: "one Extension." When people we care about are directly impacted in a difficult situation, we know our first priority is to provide support. We also know there is an indirect impact felt by each of us as colleagues--and the whole community including partners and program participants. It is important to stay grounded in our mission and work as one Extension.
Remember that Extension works to have a diversified portfolio of state, federal, county, and income funding. This organization stands on a stable foundation.
Thanks for your continued support of our nutrition education colleagues.
