Social Marketing Campaigns

Hydrate My State is a statewide campaign initiative led by the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) and Georgia SNAP-Ed IAs. The campaign promotes the consumption of water and other healthy beverages. All campaign messaging centers on at least one of three points: the link between sugary drinks and chronic diseases, the excess calories in sugary drinks, and the importance of drinking water. The messaging will be promoted through social media postings and during community outreach events held during the month of September. 

SNAP-Ed Banner

The DPH social marketing campaign aims to increase awareness of the SNAP-Ed program and provide messaging about eating smart, moving more, and drinking more water. The campaign will target census tracts and zip codes where the SNAP-Ed target audience resides in the funded health districts.
