A Franciscan commitment to our agricultural community & local economy

Local food is good medicine for our patients and our community. Because of this, Sacred Heart Hospital has led the local food effort in western Wisconsin and partnered with River Country RC&D to create the Producers & Buyers Co-op. As a partner in this innovative project, we’re helping open doors for other institutions
(hospitals, universities, schools, nursing homes) to also purchase local food. Thanks to the Co-op, our patients and cafeteria patrons and Meals-on-Wheels customers enjoy fresh local food products with greater nutrition and better taste. Leading the way for others to purchase local food is just one way Sacred Heart Hospital is
committed to its community. It’s a part of our historic Franciscan mission to benefit and support local family farms and our local economy.

For a brochure or member information on the Co-op,
please call (715) 834-9672.
