UW-Green Bay intern helps WIC families eat healthy
The Winnebago Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) staff hired Sarah Heidorf, a UW-Green Bay student studying nutritional sciences, to help market the WIC and the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program in Winnebago County. Heidorf surveyed participants and quickly realized that logistics were a problem. So, she arranged to have vendors come to the Oshkosh WIC check pick-up site to sell their produce. She also aimed younger, at children, by dressing up as “Young Mac Donald” to get kids excited about fresh farm fruits and vegetables, with songs, games and taste tests.
