Help at hand for mothers on Monday

August 9, 2012 by  

On Monday, August 13, the Greenfield Health Department will present ‘The Women, Infants, and Children’s Clinic’ at the Greenfield City Hall in Greenfield, Wisconsin. The clinic will start at 8:30 am and continue until 3:15 pm.

The Greenfield City Hall is home to the Greenfield Health Department. These clinics are open to moms and their kids every Monday and the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. The nutritional program offered through this clinic is a federally-funded program offered to pregnant, post-partum, and breastfeeding mothers, as well as infants and children under five years old.
At the clinic, participants receive vouchers for a selection of necessary products, including formula, juices, carrots, tuna, peas, beans, peanut butter, cereal, cheese, eggs, and milk. The families who attend also receive educational training in nutrition, breastfeeding, and obtain referrals to other public health services within the community. The guidelines for people eligible for this program can be obtained from the government’s website. This is an ongoing program where moms must bring supporting documents when they attend.

This program is aimed to be particularly useful for those in need of assistance or on low incomes. Poster printing and flyer printing may have been a promotional tool used to present this program to new moms and moms with younger children. Admission is free to government requirement-meeting families.
