A fun way to get kids excited about drawing all types of food. Deadline for next year's 2019 contest is April 15th. This contest is open to Oregon schools where OSU Extension Service SNAP-Ed is present.
Food Hero is piloting the insertion of Food Hero Monthlies at the point of purchase in Grocery Stores and Client Choice Food Pantries. Additionally any materials from the Community Toolkit can be used in grocery stores.
Once submitted to the Food Hero team potential recipes go through testing. In addition to being tested for overall flavor, color, and texture we look for recipes that have low-cost and easy to find ingredients, easy to follow instructions, and a reasonable preparation time. Each recipe is tasted and rated by several people using these comment cards.
The Food Hero Spanish Glossary is a pictorial reference list of common vocabulary terms. A team of bilingual SNAP-Ed nutrition educators from throughout Oregon provides ongoing input, working with a professional translation team and reviewer team. The intention is to have consistent, easily understood word use across Food Hero materials, and words that are understandable across Spanish dialects.
