The Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program is a supplemental food and nutrition education program that serves financially eligible women, infants, and children under the age of five. Fathers, step-parents, foster parents, grandparents and guardians are also encouraged to apply for these benefits for any eligible children in the household.

The goal of the WIC program is to help keep pregnant and breastfeeding women, new moms, and kids under age five healthy. It provides:

  • Personalized nutrition information and support
  • Benefits to buy healthy food
  • Tips for eating well to improve health
  • Referrals for services that can benefit the whole family

The program also offers immunization screening and referral, breastfeeding support, and nutrition and health classes on a variety of topics, including meal planning, maintaining a healthy weight, picky eaters, caring for a new baby, shopping on a budget and more.
