CalFresh Healthy Living Building Blocks for Success

CalFresh Healthy Living Building Blocks for Success is an interactive training that explores the fundamentals of our program’s roles in developing and maintaining healthy communities. It aims to help new CalFresh Healthy Living staff apply public health strategies that support healthy eating and physical activity in the communities they serve.   It focuses on key elements of programmatic and fiscal/administrative areas.

Building Blocks for Success includes:

  • SNAP Town. This is a virtual town with 23 locations and 13 characters to help staff explore types of activities we do in CalFresh Health Living

  • Onboarding video. This is inspirational welcoming video montage of nearly two dozen employees sharing their experiences with the program and why it is such a value part of the local public health and community change efforts. This may be a helpful tool in explaining SNAP-Ed to new staff, partners, or other community stakeholders

  • 20 Learning modules.  These will cover some of the basics content and concepts of many core Program and Fiscal/Administration topics. Most of the modules are very brief - lasting only 5 – 10 minutes.  They have voice over dialog to enhance the learning and many of them have interactive learning activities.  Also, you will be able to choose the order you go in. 

The online modules are available on the CSUS website that houses the other online training modules, such as Civil Rights.
