The Exemplary Physical Education Curriculum (EPEC) provides educators with evidence-based tools to help make every child a physically-educated child. For SNAP-Ed programs, the Michigan Fitness Foundation (MFF) offers Nutrition-Enhanced EPEC so physical educators and others involved with your SNAP-Ed program have the tools and resources they need to implement nutrition education in the gymnasium. The Nutrition-Enhanced EPEC training, which is a 3.5 hour training, is suitable for teachers new to EPEC and those wanting a refresher. MFF covers the cost of the EPEC training for SNAP-Ed participants and registration is required. Substitute teacher pay and mileage may be reimbursed if approved in your organization’s SNAP-Ed budget. If you are interested in attending an EPEC training, please contact us at epec-coach@michiganfitness.org (email link).
