Services What to Expect Contact Info Hours

 

The Day Kimball Hospital WIC Program provides assistance to low income women and their children up to five years of age to ensure proper nutrition through education and supplemental foods, such as eggs, milk, juice, cereals, cheese, dried beans, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and peanut butter. Infant formula supplements are also provided for babies who are formula fed. 

The program has both a registered dietitian and a lactation consultant on staff. It is an income eligible program, meaning clients are accepted based upon their income. Families that receive health insurance through HUSKY A are automatically eligible for WIC.

What to Expect

To participate in the WIC program, you will be asked to provide proof of income, residency, proper identification, and recent medical information. Upon verification of eligibility, you will then visit with a WIC nutritionist, who will discuss your and your family’s diet, and provide educational resources to help you understand the importance of good nutrition for both you and your children. At the end of the appointment, food vouchers, which can be redeemed at local stores, will be distributed. 

Things to Remember

Please bring your proof of income, proof of residency, identification and recent medical information, particularly height, weight and hemoglobin.
