Promising Practice Exchanges (PPE)
The Promising Practice Exchanges (PPEs) are annual mini-workshops that provide an opportunity for SNAP-Ed agencies to showcase local, regional and national promising practices. The training and technical assistance provided will address region-specific needs as identified in the SNAP-Ed Integrated Work Plans and will allow opportunities for attendees to network with peers.
