Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program

Wisconsin WIC Program

WIC is a special supplemental food program for women, infants, and children to help keep them healthy and strong. If your family includes a pregnant, breastfeeding, or postpartum woman; a baby or child under the age of five, you may be eligible for this nutrition program.

WIC offers nutrition classes and counseling, breastfeeding support, immunizations for children, lead screenings, referrals to other health services and vouchers to purchase healthy food. The supplemental foods include iron-rich cereals, whole grains, fruits, fruit juices, eggs, peanut butter, dried beans, vegetables, milk, and iron-fortified infant formula.

WIC's Farmers Market Nutrition Program is available June through September. Vouchers from this program can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at various Farmers Markets.

The WIC program uses income criteria similar to the reduced price school lunch systems. You are likely income eligible for WIC if you receive BadgerCare Plus benefits. Many working families qualify for WIC. Fathers, guardians, and foster parents may apply for WIC for their children.

For more information, to apply, or to make an appointment please call the WIC office at 262-335-4466. If you or your child are ill on your appointment day, you will need to reschedule.
