Sam Rodgers has an award-winning WIC team that is dedicated to helping families thrive! WIC is a federally funded program that provides individualized nutrition education and counseling, nutritious foods, breastfeeding education, and other support.
Individual nutrition counseling is focused on the specific needs and interests of the family with the goal to help families achieve an overall healthy lifestyle.
WIC provides free nutritious foods that are high in protein, iron, calcium, and vitamins A and C. Specific foods issued are based on each individual’s category. We offer fresh/frozen fruits and vegetables, eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, soy milk, tofu, peanut butter, beans, 100% juice, hot and cold cereal, whole wheat bread (pasta, tortillas, and brown rice as well), canned fish, infant cereals, baby food, and infant formula.
Sam Rodgers WIC is a federally recognized Breastfeeding Friendly WIC clinic. We promote breastfeeding as the healthiest way to feed babies and all staff at our center have breastfeeding support training. Not only that, but we have after-hours support, a lactation consultant on staff, and a breast pump loan program for those in need of some extra help.

We accept Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance. If you don’t have insurance, we can help you apply or we will determine a cost based on your income and family size. We will never deny health care if a patient is unable to pay.
