What is WIC?

The Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program helps keep your family healthy and strong by providing:

» Wholesome foods for pregnant women, new moms, infants and children under 5 years old.

» Breastfeeding support including help getting a breast pump.

» Individualized nutrition information and feeding tips for your family.

» Referrals to other community programs and health services.


Do I Qualify?

  • Many working families, including self-employed and military families, qualify for WIC. Check updated income guidelines.
  • You may also qualify if anyone in your family is receiving FoodShare, Medicaid, or BadgerCare Plus.
  • Foster children and Kinship Care recipients under age 5, and foster teens who are pregnant are eligible for WIC.
  • Aren’t sure if your income or BadgerCare qualifies you for WIC? Call (715) 232-2498 to talk with a WIC Staff person who will screen income eligibility over the phone.
