Policy, Systems & Environmental Change Resource Guide: Strategies for Increased Access to Healthy Foods, Beverages & Physical Activity

This guide identifies resources and strategies to advance obesity prevention through policy, systems and environmental (PSE) change efforts that local implementing agencies may use as a part of their work through the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (SNAP-Ed).  With the passage of the federal Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) in 2010, local implementing agencies are now required to use evidence-based PSE strategies within their multi-level SNAP-Ed community nutrition programming.  The PSE Resource Guide provides samples of regional and national evidence-based, practice-based, and emerging tools and resources to achieve policy, systems and environmental change to advance obesity prevention efforts in a variety of settings.
