Woman, Infants, and Children (WIC)
Our program is free to eligible parents or legal guardians in Saline and Ellsworth Counties. WIC offers nutrition support to pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, and to children up to five years of age. It provides benefits for nutritious foods, along with nutrition education to support a healthy pregnancy and improve birth outcomes, and prevent or correct health problems caused by poor nutrition. WIC can also help connect you to other community resources and provides breastfeeding support.
Our offices are currently open by appointment only Monday through Thursday. To make an appointment or to determine your eligibility, please call (785) 826-6603.
