Bartholomew County would like to welcome Kathy Laudick as the new Family Nutrition Program Assistant.
Kathy will be working with the community to help people to eat healthy on a budget. On this webpage you will find the Family Nutrition Program's newsletter, a Agency Referral Form, and a brief description of what the FNP Program is all about. Look back often for upcoming programs and events.
