WIC (Women, Infants and Children)
Ramsey County’s WIC Program will stay open during the partial federal government shutdown.
WIC is a supplemental food, nutrition and breastfeeding program that helps eligible pregnant women, new mothers, babies and young children eat well, learn about nutrition and stay healthy.
WIC income guidelines allow many working families and students to qualify. WIC food vouchers are available to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables and other healthy foods at neighborhood grocery stores and many neighborhood farmers’ markets.
The caring, bilingual staff provides health assessments, nutrition education and counseling, breastfeeding support and referrals to health and other services in the community.
