WIC (Women, Infants and Children)

WIC began in 1975 and is known to be a program that works.

The WIC Program aims to safeguard the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating, and referrals to health care.

Clients receive an individualized food package and nutrition education. Families must meet income guidelines and be screened for a nutritional risk.

Appointments are necessary, please call (701) 724-3725.


1. You must be a:

  • pregnant woman;
  • breastfeeding woman (up to one year after giving birth)
  • new mother (up to six months after giving birth)
  • parent or caretaker of an infant or child younger than 5 years of age


2. You must have a nutritional health risk. The WIC Staff will be able to find a risk by checking your height, weight and iron level and having you answer some health and diet questions.


3. Your annual household income must be within WIC Income Eligilbity Guidelines which are based on gross income unless you are self-employed. Note: You may have a job and still meet these guidelines.


If you receive Medical Assistance (Medicaid), TANF, SNAP, or Healthy Steps, you are income eligible for WIC even if your income is above these guidelines. [Note: If you are pregnant, you can add one more person to the size of your household.]

Not sure if you are eligible? The WIC PreScreening Tool can help you determine if you may be eligible.
