Risk and Reach


Seventy percent of Minnesota’s eligible children under age 6 are served by the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). WIC is a federal program that provides low-income pregnant women and postpartum mothers, and to children up to age 5 at nutritional risk with nutrient-rich foods, health care and social service referrals, and nutrition counseling and education. Eligible families have incomes at or below 185 percent of federal poverty levels or are Medicaid eligible.
