Bates County Health Center
Renaye Still WIC Coordinator
The Bates County Health Center is pleased to announce the continuation of WIC services for the Federal Fiscal Year 2023.
Under the terms of the contract through the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Bates County will be able to serve participants that meet proper guidelines set by the USDA. Standards for eligibility and participation for Women, Infants & Children are the same for everyone regardless of race, color, national origin, age, disability or sex.
Participants must meet financial guidelines and receive a health screening consisting of height, weight, hemoglobin and diet history. A certified professional determines eligibility.
Eligible participants receive WIC benefits with food items that are redeemable at authorized retail stores. WIC foods are chosen to provide foods high in protein, iron, calcium and vitamins A&C. For infants who are not breastfed, WIC does provide iron fortified formula. Infants 6-11 months receive baby foods of fruits and vegetables. For those infants that are breastfed, they also receive baby food meats. The nursing mothers receive the maximum food package.
The WIC program also makes referrals to other community resources.
WIC clinics are held at the Bates County Health Center, 501 N. Orange St. Butler, MO 64730. Persons interested in applying or wanting more information can contact the office at 660-679-6108.
