That includes supporting the Farm to Table Dinner, Farm to School, Waupaca Farm Market and working with organizers of local events to help them provide healthier menu options.
Living the Waupaca Way is the result of a 2016 merger between two groups.
Those groups are the Waupaca County Nutrition and Activity Coalition (NuAct) and Waupaca Community Health Action Team’s (CHAT) healthy living work group.
Waupaca’s CHAT is made up of group of people from throughout the community who work together to understand local health issues.
NuAct formed in 2003 after childhood health, nutrition and inactivity surfaced as health concerns in the county.
Due to their common goals for the community, members of the two groups began meeting in 2016 and decided to join efforts under a new name: Living the Waupaca Way.
