Wisconsin WIC Program Partners in Care

Caring for Young Kids?

You want the best for the kids in your care. Whether you’re a mom, dad, grandparent or guardian—you may be eligible for the Wisconsin WIC program. We’re proud to partner with WIC as we work towards helping families with children under the age of five eat well and live healthily. Our bilingual WIC services are available to people living in Waushara, Green Lake and Marquette counties.

We’re on a mission to:

  • Help mothers have healthier pregnancies.
  • Promote and support breastfeeding.
  • Give kids the healthiest start to life.
  • Ensure mother and children receive health screenings and necessary care.
  • Support new parents and guardians with education, resources, and support.

 

WIC provides: 

  • Nutrition education
  • Nutritious foods such as: fruits and vegetables, milk, yogurt, cheese, eggs, whole grain foods (bread, tortillas, rice, pasta, oats), juice, cereal, beans, peanut butter and infant formula (WIC Approved Food Guide).
  • Lactation consultations and support through the Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program
  • Breast pumps are available to eligible clients
  • Health screening and information/referrals for other community and social services, immunizations, doctors, dentists, and more
  • Fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs provided in the summertime through the Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program

Who is Eligible?

You must:

  • Live in Wisconsin. We will not ask about your immigration status. You do not need to be a legal resident to participate in Wisconsin WIC.
  • Be income eligible (view the income eligibility table here)
  • Be one or have one or more of the following members in your family:
    • Pregnant women
    • Mothers with babies up to 6 months old, and women who have had a pregnancy loss up to 6 months postpartum
    • Mothers breastfeeding babies up to 1 year old
    • Infants (0-12 months old)
    • Children (1-5 years old)

Not sure if you qualify? You can use the online pre-screening tool from USDA found here to determine if you are eligible before you call. If anyone in your family is receiving FoodShare, Medicaid, BadgerCare Plus, Wisconsin Works Program (W2), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR), you’re likely eligible!

Dads, grandparents, and other caregivers of children under the age of 5 may also sign kids up for WIC.

Foster children and Kinship Care recipients under age 5, and foster teens who are pregnant are eligible for WIC.
