Nutrition Education

FoodWIse, formerly known as the Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program (WNEP), is a community nutrition education program within the Family Living Programs of the University of Wisconsin-Extension, Cooperative Extension. University of Wisconsin-Extension Family Living Programs respond to community needs with research-based education and partnerships that support Wisconsin families and communities.. We are very excited to bring this project to the area and have a goal to reach and educate the food stamp eligible population about nutrition, food safety, physical activity and available state services for low-income individuals and families. The Wood County FoodWise Nutrition Educator will be sharing activities with various groups, primarily elementary school children and senior citizens. FoodWIse focuses on reaching the low-income population however, our assistance is not limited to those specific individuals.
