FoodWIse Newsletters

We are happy to share that we are now offering an Ashland/Bayfield/Iron County monthly FoodWIse newsletter. Based on feedback from partners, we are providing a monthly offering that includes nutrition education, local information on food resources, recipes, and much more. These monthly newsletters will replace some of our previous publications such as our weekly recipes, bimonthly senior newsletters, and monthly menu backs. We are excited to now offer one comprehensive resource.

Some uses for these newsletters may include: pairing with menus at schools and sending home with students, inclusion in food pantry boxes/displaying on tables, sharing on social media outlets, inclusion with senior meals, or distributing to participants in your programs in other ways you see fit.
