The Community Resource Handbook provides descriptions and contact information for over 400 agencies and organizations that serve Brown County. Professionals will find this booklet helpful for identifying resources for those they serve.

Brown County Extension FoodWIse developed this resource as part of a food security initiative. Food is often one of the first expenses to be cut when on a limited income. Increased accessibility of low cost community resources to low income families is one strategy to extend the household budget. 

The handbook is printed as a 8.5” x 5.5” booklet and costs $4.00 per copy. You can purchase copies online here. Click on "make a payment" and fill out the form. When filling out the form, put "Community Resource Handbook" for the program name. You will be notified when your copies are ready for pick up.
