Women, Infants & Children (WIC) is a nutrition program for families that include women who are pregnant or have recently had a baby, infants, and children up to five years of age. Other caregivers such as fathers, step-parents, grandparents, and foster parents may all apply for children under the age of five living in their household. The WIC program provides three primary services to clients:
Nutrition education and counseling for healthy diets and growth during pregnancy, infancy, and childhood
Referrals to other agencies as appropriate
A supplemental food package tailored to the individual
How do I apply for WIC?
Call (701) 642-7735 and make an appointment. Friendly WIC staff will help you schedule an appointment and answer any questions. Applying at the WIC clinic is the only way to apply, as in-person enrollment is required.
Go to the WIC appointment. Your first appointment will take about 30-45 minutes. If you qualify, you will get your WIC food benefits that day to use at your local grocery store.
