Collaborative approach to nutrition education in schools and communities: exploring the lessons


, : Collaborative approach to nutrition education in schools and communities: exploring the lessons. Journal of Nutrition Education 30(5): 332-339

This article reports on 10 sites that received support from Food and Consumer Services, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Community Nutrition Education Consortium, a 2-year effort to promote collaborative, community-based approaches to nutrition education. Drawing from external evaluations of each site, as well as a report that synthesizes findings across sites, this article establishes a conceptual framework for understanding the type of community collaboration sought in this effort. A description of the consortia frameworks used by the sites to enable collaboration and a discussion of the nature of the collaboration at the sites is also offered. The article concludes with an exploration of the interaction between collaboration and an intervention and offers preliminary lessons and implications for practitioners and policy makers.
