 “EBT/SNAP CHAMPIONS! Let’s Unite!” wrote Sara George, Wabasha Farmers Market Manager, in 2016. The letter invited those interested to attend a meeting at Wabasha County Public Health to work on increasing EBT usage at the Farmers Market. Today this group continues to meet and work toward increasing access to healthy food across Wabasha County. 

The first meeting occurred in June 2016 with 16 participants who came ready and excited about working to find solutions to increase access to healthy foods for local underserved populations.  As needs were identified, the group decided it was important to continue meeting. Next, a presentation from U of M Extension talked about the Minnesota Food Charter and afterwards we evolved into the Wabasha County Food Access Network (WCFAN). In addition to working with our county’s farmers markets on increasing use of EBT, the group has identified the following priorities: 

  • Increasing access to healthy foods for Seniors

  • Reducing stigma attached to receiving services

  • Increasing knowledge of healthy food opportunities through outreach, and

  • Increasing access to affordable transportation.to access healthy foods.

What is the Public Bike Share Program?

With coordination help from the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP), Wabasha Bike/Walk Advocates have secured six Republic Bikes for the City of Wabasha Public Bikes program. The bikes have coaster brakes, fenders, a chain guard and non-inflatable tires (similar to the photo). Bikes have a basket on the handlebars and are designed for short distance rides.

HOW TO USE THE BIKES

  • Bikes are free for the first 10 hours and need to be returned by 10 pm each day.

  • Bikes are located downtown Wabasha on Main Street at Heritage Park by the sidewalk under the Wabasha Interstate bridge.

  • A credit card and a smartphone are all that is needed to unlock a bike.

  • No charge will be generated if the bike is returned within 10 hours.

  • Download the QR Code to learn more about the Bloom app.

SPECIAL THANKS

This program is made possible by Wabasha Bike/Walk Advocates, comprised of a group of city officials, local merchants and citizens, with assistance from SHIP Coordinator Tina Moen. The group met for almost a year to find a way to provide bicycles for visitors and local residents who do not have a bike and want to explore the community to be active. Wabasha Public Works Director, Tony Johnson, has been helpful in identifying how the city can aid this venture and is the fiscal agent for the SHIP-funded project. Bike shop owner, Dave Wogen, of River Rider Cycle first proposed the idea and helped locate vendors. The Wabasha Main Street organization has been supportive as a great way to get people interested in the historic downtown and to be a healthy way to explore an active river town.

If you would like information on what it means to partner with Wabasha County SHIP on healthy eating, physical activity, and/or tobacco-free environment projects, please email Tina Moen or call her at 651-565-5200.
