How can human-centered design support SNAP-Ed reach and impact?

The Food, Fitness, and Opportunity Research Collaborative and Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters hosted a webinar on July 29, 2021 to share how they have been using human-centered design methods to develop intervention frameworks that center the needs and desires of SNAP-eligible caregivers of young children in places where they frequent.

To date, the team has led over 40 hours of design workshops with caregivers of young children, SNAP-Ed Implementing Agency staff, and key system stakeholders to co-create robust intervention frameworks and roadmaps for food retail and early child education settings.

During this webinar, we will:
– Introduce you to key human-centered design principles and the design challenge this project seeks to address.
– Explain how human-centered design mindsets and principles can help SNAP-Ed IAs engage SNAP-eligible audiences and key implementation partners.
– Demonstrate tools and techniques in the intervention framework to help you test and adapt these food retail strategies in your community.

This project has been an incredible experience, and we are looking forward to sharing our insights and learnings with the broader SNAP-Ed community. While this webinar will focus on what we learned in the food retail setting, we hope we can present our findings from the early childhood education and healthcare settings with you in the future.
