JNEB Journal Club: Healthy Choices Catch On: Data-informed Evolution of a Social Marketing Campaign

March 11, 2024 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET

This presentation will provide an update on MFF’s social marketing campaign initially launched in 2006. MFF's has evolved its campaign taglines, variables of measurement (e.g., nutrition security), and population of focus through the years, while remaining committed to encouraging increased fruit and vegetable consumption and physical activity among SNAP-eligible Michiganders. In 2020–2021, the tagline “Show Them the Way” was introduced and has continued to be the current messaging used in the Healthy Choices Catch on social marketing campaign. While social marketing efforts were previously concentrated within specific Michigan counties, starting in 2021, the messages were extended to all qualifying census tracts statewide.
