If you were on the quarterly webinar last week, or had an opportunity to view the recorded version, you heard Katherine talk a bit about adding a theme to your CMATS events as a way to enhance the experience and resources provided to your participants. As she mentioned, IFFS recently partnered with the American Heart Association to procure additional incentives and handouts with our CMATS tours, focusing on healthy heart shopping during the month of February for National Heart Month.
Pitt Partners for Health has been successful tapping into the existing enthusiasm, momentum and media coverage for both National Nutrition Month (February) and Food Day events (October) in order to get more participants to the store, and highlight work their organization is doing in the community.

For more ideas on how to maximize participation and highlight the work you are doing in the community, check out the March quarterly webinar in the previous blog post!
