Natrona County WIC moves to new location
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Natrona County Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) has moved to a new location in the city of Casper. They will now be located at 951 N. Poplar St.
WIC is a program that is part of the Wyoming Department of Health and supplies nursing women and single mothers with nutritional supplies for children from infancy to age 5. The program doesn’t only benefit mothers though, any guardian can utilize the program to help care for children.
“We are only serving approximately half of the eligible clients in Natrona County and we would really love to get more of those eligible clients available. The custodial parent or the foster parent, grandparent, guardian, whoever it is that is responsible for that child, can be eligible to receive services for that child on their behalf,” said Toni Patik, who is the Regional Nutrition Supervisor for the Natrona County WIC.
The WIC offers foods such as fruits, vegetables, and dairy products along with infant formula and baby food. They also give advice and guidance to breastfeeding mothers and even help supply some with nursing aids like breast pumps.
