Price County WIC program is here to provide nutrition
education, breastfeeding assistance along with healthy food options tailored to
meet the needs of pregnant and postpartum women, infants and children til the
age of 5. There are many food choices available for each type of participant.
The WIC program is currently using a debit card system to
provide benefits. These benefits can be used at any WIC approved store in the
state of Wisconsin. We recently added an app for smart phones to help participants
monitor benefits, scan items to check if WIC approved, search for a store and
so much more. These upgrades the past
year have been a blessing for all involved.
