Current WIC Participants
As COVID-19 continues to impact us locally, we will be closing all Public Health Madison & Dane County offices to the public effective Thursday, March 19, 2020.
Although this decision was not arrived at easily, it is a decision that we needed to make. We are prioritizing preserving the health and safety of our staff and clients while continuing to maintain our ability to provide essential services, including our response to COVID-19.
We will continue providing services through alternate avenues, detailed below, but at this time we are reducing our direct contact with the public.Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) our WIC clinic is closed. Staff are available by phone for appointments and questions. If you have a scheduled appointment, you will receive a phone call from WIC on the day of the appointment. WIC benefits will be loaded onto your WIC card at the time of the phone call. Please contact the clinic with any questions.

Breastfeeding Peer Counselors
Breastfeeding Peer Counselors help moms meet their breastfeeding goals by offering information, resources, and support. Peer Counselors are breastfeeding moms trained by WIC to help prepare mom's to successful breastfeed their babies and navigate any issues they encounter. Moms have regular contact with their Peer Counselor and have access to them via phone, email, and text to ensure they feel well supported and confident through their breastfeeding journey.
Vehicle Registration Gift Cards
Families who participate in WIC, who own a car(s), and live in the City of Madison are eligible to receive a $40 VISA gift card. The gift card is an initiative funded by the City of Madison to off-set the burden of the additional $40 vehicle registration fee that is in effect for 2020. If a family has more than one vehicle, they are eligible for more than one gift card.
To receive a gift card, WIC participants must first pay their vehicle registration in 2020. They must also provide proof that the registration was paid. The Certificate of Vehicle Registration must be shown at the time the gift card is received. This certificate is mailed with vehicle tags.
Gift cards will be provided from the clinic located at 2705 E. Washington by appointment.
Contact WIC at 608-267-1111 for more information.
