Celebrate WIC and National Nutrition Month with Us

Posted on March 10, 2023 at 12:44 PM by Evangelina Klawitter

Whether it is supporting healthy birth outcomes or facilitating a live cooking demo with your kids at the library, our Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) team is here to create healthy outcomes for families in Walworth County. Our WIC team implements the WIC program many of us know - the supplemental nutrition program that supports the health of pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to the age of 5 who meet income, medical, or nutritional eligibility requirements. These benefits are provided so families can get nutritious foods they deserve and need to grow healthy and happy. Our staff help support healthy eating, promote breastfeeding, and refer participants to health care.
