Nutrition Education

Welcome to the Vernon County FoodWIse Webpage.


Who We Are:  We are educators who use a combination of evidence-based educational strategies, accompanied by environmental supports, designed to encourage healthy food choices and active lifestyles.

What We Do:  We work to expose students to new, nutritious foods and teach why they are important. We provide adults and families with tools that help them plan and prepare healthy meals while making the most with their food dollars.  We also work to help make the healthy choice, the easy choice in our community.

Why We Do It:  We seek to empower Wisconsin residents with limited income to make healthy choices to achieve healthy lives and reduce health disparities.

To learn more about what we do or for more information about making healthy food choices, quick and easy meals, feeding your family on a tight budget, or similar topics, please go to or contact us at the UW-Extension office.
