Please see the message below from the North Ottawa Wellness Foundation (NOWF), and consider participating in this short survey. Also, please share the information widely with your clients, colleagues, etc. in Ottawa County via email and social media. NOWF is conducting the survey to learn more about how our community eats, and how those choices impact overall wellness. Please note the survey will run through December 18. NOWF will share the results with Ottawa Food to use in our strategic planning process next year. Thanks for helping to spread the word!

Nutrition is an essential part of wellness. However, everyone has a different set of habits, experiences and challenges related to food. Will you please anonymously share some of your insights and patterns around eating through this 5-minute survey?

Here’s why we’re asking…

The survey is sponsored by North Ottawa Wellness Foundation, a group of area agencies that each have a different role to play in community wellness. Together, we provide resources and information that help residents make smart choices to improve their health.

Why are we focused on nutrition? We live in a culture where fast, inexpensive and mass-produced food does more harm to our bodies than good. We would like to understand how our community eats, and what impact those choices have on our overall wellness.

Knowledge brings the power to choose differently. Our hope is that by sharing information, we can all understand more about how food choices impact wellness. We also hope you’ll share your tips and tricks for small changes that can add up to big impact!

We’d love to have your survey response by December 18. Feel free to visit our website any time for resources and information about stress management, nutrition, exercise, and more. Thank you for taking part in this very important project!
