Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)

WIC welcomes everyone

What is WIC?

WIC is a national program that is implemented differently based on the needs of the region. In Winnebago County we are glad to have the WIC division working within our health department to support the needs of growing families when they need it most.

Mission Statement:

To safeguard the health of low to moderate-income women, infants and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk, by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating and referrals to health care.

Wisconsin WIC temporarily offers other types of formula, or substitutions, for the formula listed on your WIC benefits due to continued nationwide formula supply concerns. Find rebate and substitution information at www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/wic
