hello world!
Published: March 22, 2019


Wyandot County residents are fortunate to live in a land of plenty.  While there are people around the world living in impoverished conditions with no access to clean water or food, the same can not be said for Wyandot County residents.  Community garden spaces are available in Carey (The Link) and Upper Sandusky (Wyandot County Public Health), at no cost, for  families to grow their own produce throughout the summer.  In addition, state and federally funded food programs, which include:  SNAP, WIC and school-based reduced/free breakfast and lunch programs are available through Job and Family Services (SNAP) and Wyandot County Public Health (WIC) and provide food to qualifying individuals and families.

No person should go hungry... For those who may not qualify for government assisted programs or for those who may run out of food, please check the following food sources for people of all ages:
