Nutrition Education

The  Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program (WNEP) 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.

Light intensity activity and activity less than 10 minutes in duration do not count toward MIE minutes. Although, any activity is always better than none!
