WIC works wonders for Nebraska families




Have kids under the age of 5?

Parents and guardians are concerned about providing healthy foods for their families. The Nebraska WIC Program is a supplemental nutrition program providing extra foods for women, infants and children.

WIC can:

  • Provide nutritious foods such as milk, cheese, cereal, eggs and juice to help stretch food dollars

  • Provide ideas for eating right and using WIC foods

  • Make referrals to other health programs and social services

  • Provide nutrition and breastfeeding information, education and counseling

  • Provide immunization screening

Participants must have a nutritional need for WIC foods, based on a health or nutrition risk identified by a WIC nurse or nutritionist, must live in Nebraska, and meet specific income guidelines. Many working people can qualify for WIC. There are currently over 120 WIC clinics in Nebraska.   For more information or to make an appointment, contact the WIC agency nearest you or call the State WIC Office at: 1-800-942-1171
