Due to the challenges of holding in-person classes this summer, FoodWIse will instead start offering a bi-weekly newsletter to the senior populations in Fond du Lac County. This is an effective way to get the most relevant and current nutrition information, while also prioritizing their health and safety.
The ‘Stay Home, Stay Healthy’ newsletters will be one page (front and back) with highlights on nutrition, food safety, food budgeting, and a recipe. Newsletters will either be posted on the site’s community bulletins or delivered to them personally.
The first newsletter features: eating red, white and blue foods (nutrition), COVID and food (food safety), shopping during COVID (food budgeting), and mini berry pies.
FoodWIse partners with 3 senior housing sites throughout Fond du Lac County to offer nutrition education.
