Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) - Support at County level available
Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a supplemental food program for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age 5 who are found to be a nutritional risk. WIC also provides education on nutrition and how to keep families healthy. While there are no WIC offices in the City of Menasha, there are WIC offices in Calumet, Outagamie, and Winnebago Counties who can offer their support and consultation for families.
