Title: SNAP-Ed Connection Recipe Finder Sharing and Review Form.

OMB Control Number: 0518-0043.

Summary of Collection: The National Agricultural Library's SNAP-Ed Connection (formerly the Food Stamp Nutrition Connection), resource system developed an on-line recipe database, the Recipe Finder in Fiscal Year 2005. The purpose of the Recipe Finder database is to provide our target audience, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-ED) providers, with low-cost, easy to prepare, healthy recipes for classes and demonstrations with SNAP-Ed participants. We rely on these same educators to submit their best recipes to us for review, analysis and posting in the database. Data collected using the “SNAP-Ed Connection Recipe Review Form” will help identify a recipe's eligibility for inclusion in this database. Data collected using the SNAP-Ed Connection Recipe Review Form will help identify the success or value of the recipe during use with SNAP-Ed participants.

Need and Use of the Information: The voluntary “SNAP-Ed Connection Recipe Submission Form” allows SNAP-Ed providers the opportunity to submit recipes on-line and saves contributors time and money in photocopying and mailing/faxing recipes. SNAP-ED staff reviews submissions to determine for appropriateness and eligibility for inclusion into the Recipe Finder database. The voluntary “SNAP-Ed Connection Recipe Submission Form” allows SNAP-Ed providers and other Recipe Finder users the opportunity to review recipes on-line and share their feedback, including recipe photographs, with other Recipe Finder users. Failure of the SNAP-Ed Connection to this information would inhibit the ability of the target audience to participate in a valuable resource that will assist them and in turn the SNAP-Ed participants.

Description of Respondents: Individual or households; Not-for Profit Institutions; State, Local or Tribal Government.

Number of Respondents: 250.

Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Annually.

Total Burden Hours: 30.
