Women, Infants and Children (WIC) helps safeguard the health of pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, as well as infants and children younger than 5 years. We do this by offering one-on-one education about nutrition and feeding practices, supporting breastfeeding, referring to health and community resources and giving vouchers to buy healthy foods.
Many working families qualify for WIC benefits. Call or come in to the Public Health Department to see if you are eligible as our income guidelines are higher than many other programs. Rice County WIC at 507-332-5906. WIC services are offered in Faribault and Northfield.
