From the McHenry County Health Department:
Families in need may be eligible for WIC Program
mcdh wic program remains open to assist families in need
WOODSTOCK – As families begin to feel the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the McHenry County Department of Health (MCDH) is actively enrolling new families that qualify for the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program.
WIC assists families with food scarcity during uncertain economic times by providing free, healthy foods. The program is an equal opportunity provider that is available to qualifying pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women and their children through age 5.
Many families will qualify, including those earning less income due to unforeseen job loss, layoffs or reduced hours.
MCDH has needed to adjust the way it operates its clinics and programs to continue to serve McHenry County while doing its part to practice physical distancing. Appointments are conducted by phone followed by WIC coupons being dispersed at a drive through location set up at our Woodstock location located at 2200 N. Seminary Ave. Building A.
To learn if you qualify or schedule to schedule a telephone appointment, please call 815-344-4505.
