USDA Has New and Updated Outreach Materials in Spanish

Chile Rellenos(From our friends at the USDA)

For the past few years, many partners who work with the USDA Food and Nutrition Service have requested more of our outreach materials in Spanish. We are excited to announce two new Spanish outreach materials, as well as draw your attention to many of our useful existing materials. We encourage you to check out these materials and spread the word that they are available for download or order.

The Summer Food Service Program Outreach Toolkit has outreach tips for how to reach families and children, media, schools, and other community organizations. It also has a series of templates for letters, press releases, calendars, posters, and much more. These templates can be customized with your organization’s contact information and feeding site details. The toolkit and all the templates are now available in Spanish; click here to download!

How To Get Food Help, the low literacy, clear language brochure for consumers about how to apply for USDA’s nutrition assistance programs is now available in Spanish as well. You can order up to 700 copies for free at http://snap.ntis.gov. You can also learn more about how to use this brochure in your outreach efforts and download a PDF version in both English and Spanish by clicking here.

And don’t forget to check out the existing outreach materials and tools in Spanish…
