Welcome to new SNAP-Ed educator Faro Jones


By Janice Rasmussen, SNAP-Ed regional coordinator

I am excited to introduce Faro Jones, our newest SNAP-Ed educator working out of the Extension Ramsey County office in Maplewood. Faro will be part of the Frogtown-Rondo place-based approach team and will teach classes and do policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) work around the Twin Cities-metro area. After training later this month, she will begin teaching I CAN Prevent Diabetes classes.

Originally from Minneapolis, Faro has spent the last 10 years working as a dietitian in New Orleans and Oakland. Her main interest is in improving food access, nutrition education and farming. She has a background in the Women, Infants, and Children program and lots of community work experience. In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering, traveling, and working on her farm plot in Stillwater.

SNAP-Ed educators, please contact Faro about shadowing you in some of your classes, PSE work, or meetings with partners. She is excited to get out in the community, to see how you do your work and to meet you all. The sooner the better on that! You can reach Faro at jone0374@umn.edu.
