Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Winnebago WIC Program will be maintaining social distancing and minimizing social contact. Winnebago WIC will continue to provide participant-centered services while supporting the public efforts to contain the outbreak.
Starting today until further notice, the WIC office is closed to the public. Curbside check pick-ups will be available daily from 10:00am to 2:00pm (Mon-Fri, please call first and staff will bring the checks outside to you).
With any new certifications or recertifications, specific waivers granted for Winnebago WIC can be found at the USDA.gov website, they include the ability to complete an appointment without physical presence, and deferring height, weight and blood tests. We also have a waiver that will allow us to mail the vouchers if that is your preference.
Please call the office during regular business hours 8:00am to 4:00pm or use the Winnebago WIC’s Facebook messenger to make arrangements with staff.
We can be reached at (402)878-2499. Please call with any questions. Thank You
