The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children — better known as the WIC Program — serves to “safeguard the health of low-income pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, infants and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk.”

WIC services for Crow Wing County residents will continue to be offered remotely through Aug. 21. Program appointments and services will be conducted by phone.

For more information regarding WIC, call 218-824-1073 or email at WIC@crowwing.us .

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is responsible for administering the WIC Program at the national and regional levels by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating including breastfeeding promotion and support, and referrals to health care.
