FoodWIse Nutrition Education

The  Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program, now called FoodWIse, for Vilas, Florence and Forest Counties strives to reach individuals and families with limited resources to share information related to nutrition, feeding families on a limited budget and ways to stretch food dollars. Individuals and families eligible for food stamps are our primary audience.
