You may be income eligible for WIC if:

  • You currently receive Kinship Care, W-2, Food Stamps, and/or Badgercare, including Healthy Start.
  • Food Stamp eligibility has been cancelled.

Prospective participants are encouraged to call for an income screening.

The WIC Program uses the same income criteria as free and reduced price school lunches.

Fathers, guardians or foster parents may apply for WIC for their children.  

Call the WIC program nearest you: 608-754-3722/Janesville or 608-362-1566/Beloit for assistance in locating a WIC program. 

At your appointment, a WIC nutritionist will review you or your child's health history. You will also discuss what you and your children eat.

If you are eligible, you will receive nutrition information and counseling, learn about other services, and receive an eWIC card to purchase healthy, nutritious foods.
