ST. CLOUD - Stearns County is making it easier to apply for the Women, Infants and Children Nutrition Program.

The WIC application has now been put online.  County residents now have the option to either call or go online and fill out the application.  After they submit it electronically, someone from the Stearns County Public Health Division will call them to schedule an appointment.

WIC is a federally funded health and nutrition program for low income, pregnant women, new mothers, infants and children.
