Close to 440 Kewaunee County residents benefitted from a federal special supplemental nutrition program in 2015. The Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program not only helps provide nutritious food and education to people in need, but it also provides valuable support to breastfeeding mothers. Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt says the counseling the WIC program provides is very important.
Residents can apply to the Kewaunee County WIC program through its public health department. WIC was started by the U.S. government in 1972 to provide grants so low-income citizens can live more healthy lives.
