Nutrition Education

Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program (WNEP) is a federally funded grant program. WNEP education is supported by the USDA Food Stamp Program, UW-Extension and local partners. Our mission is to develop and implement community-based education programs, within a university research-based context.

Nutrition education is provided at the Food Pantry, WIC Clinics, Schools, Head Start Programs, and Senior Citizen Mealsites throughout Buffalo County. WNEP utilizes various tools such as learn while you wait, single and multi-session classes and cooking demonstrations to educate those participating.

WNEP also partners with various advisory groups such as FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), the Buffalo County Nutrition Coalition, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Food Pantry Coordinator and the County Board of Supervisors to keep abreast of what the nutritional needs of the county are.
