Welcome to Milwaukee County’s FoodWIse Nutrition Education Program


FoodWIse helps limited resource families and individuals choose healthful diets, purchase and prepare nutritious food, and become more food secure by spending their food dollars wisely.  FoodWIse also works to enact policy, systems and environmental change to help make the healthy choice the easy choice.

FoodWIse is federally funded by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (SNAP-Ed) and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP).

Formerly known as the Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program (WNEP), FoodWIse is a part of the Milwaukee County UW-Extension Family Living Department. Both programs work at the intersection of health and financial literacy to provide community members with education and tools to make positive strides nutritionally and financially. Our goal is to empower families facing real life challenges, while addressing issues of food insecurity to improve well-being of families in our community.
