Women, Infants and Children

 
 

 

Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is a federal nutrition education program that provides supplemental foods, which promotes good health for pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women, infants and children up to age five.

The benefits of the WIC Program include: 

  • Nutritious foods, such as milk, whole grains, cereal, eggs, fruits and vegetables, peanut butter or beans.
  • Breastfeeding information and support
  • Infants who are partially or not breastfed may receive iron-fortified formula
  • Nutrition and health information
  • Referrals to health and social services when appropriate

To receive WIC benefits, household income must fall within certain guidelines.  WIC looks at the family size and income to determine eligibility.  The qualifying income level is higher than most other programs.  Many people work and still qualify for WIC benefits.  To find out if you qualify or to find out more information, call us at 507 328-7555.  Our staff can help answer your questions and schedule your appointments.  If participants do not understand English well, let our staff know and we can schedule an interpreter to be with you at your appointments.

Our clinic has day and evening hours available, and is on the bus line.
If you do not live in Minnesota or Olmsted County call 1-800-WIC-4030 to find the WIC clinic closest to you.
