WIC clinics to be held June 5 in Hallock and June 19 in Karlstad

     The Women, Infants and Children’s Supplemental Nutrition Education Program (WIC) is being held the month of June 2018.
     Infants, children up to the age of 5, and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may be eligible for the program. We are very interested in enrolling pregnant women in the program. We feel that the prenatal nutrition is a vital part of producing a healthy baby. Therefore, it is important to apply for WIC early in your pregnancy. We need no proof of pregnancy.
All potential clients must contact the WIC Program to schedule an appointment.
