FoodWIse

FoodWIse advances healthy eating habits, active lifestyles and healthy community environments for families with limited incomes through nutrition education at the individual, community and systems levels.

FoodWIse is federally funded by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (SNAP-Ed) and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP).

Each year FoodWIse delivers nutrition education to more than 50,000 participants statewide. Partnering with community-based organizations, we use a combination of evidence-based strategies designed to promote change for individuals, families and communities and help make the healthy choice the easy choice.

The role of our educators is to :

Introduce children to new fruits and vegetables and teach them why they are important
Teach parents how to buy, plan and prepare healthy meals
Engage families with limited resources in support of choosing healthy diets while stretching food dollars
Support communities in making the healthy choices where people live, learn, work, play and worship
