DOUGLAS COUNTY, Kansas (October, 2023) – Starting November 1st, Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health is embarking on an expanded partnership with Eudora Unified School District (USD 491) to provide WIC services on location at 1310 Winchester Road in Eudora, Kansas. To begin, LDCPH staff will be present once a month, but that may change over time. LDCPH is hopeful that this new location will increase WIC utilization in Douglas County and make it easier for some families already accessing WIC services who live outside of Lawrence. WIC services provided by LDCPH are available to all Kansas residents that meet eligibility requirements.


WIC assists pregnant and postpartum individuals and families with children under 5 who are at, or below, 185% of the federal poverty line. Services include personalized nutrition information and support, electronic benefit transfer cards to buy healthy food, tips for eating well to improve health, breastfeeding support, and referrals for services that can benefit the whole family. Services are available in both English and Spanish.
