UW-Eau Claire – Barron County Foundation’s annual EATS (Educational Assistance Through Scholarship) fundraiser has a new look this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Replacing the in-person food-tasting event will be the Eat Well | Stay Well Coupon Book, a curated collection of special offers from many of the restaurants, bakeries, specialty stores and breweries that have participated in past EATS. The combined value of the coupons is more than $100 with offers including $5 or more off, complimentary item with purchase, Buy-One-Get-One, %-off purchase, and more. The 15-plus participating establishments are located from Spooner to Bloomer and from Cumberland to Birchwood.
Proceeds from the fundraiser support initiatives at UWEC-Barron County including student scholarships, the campus food pantry, faculty and staff professional development, Thursdays at the U public lecture series, the Student Ambassador Program and more.
