In the last two years, the Milwaukee African Women’s Association, (MILAWA) has organized an annual healthy family picnic catering to the large community of Africans and friends of Africa in Milwaukee.  The focus of the picnic is to provide health and wellness information, to educate the community about African culture and to promote healthy African food choices to participants.  This event has been funded through donations and partnerships with health organizations such as Molina Healthcare, UW-Milwaukee School of Nursing.
