How WIC Helps You...

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is here to help you. WIC provides supplemental foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding information and referrals to health and social services, free of charge, to eligible low-income pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, infants and children up to five years of age who are at nutritional risk.

WIC is a short-term intervention program designed to influence lifetime nutrition and health behaviors in a targeted high-risk population. The information you receive from WIC will help you choose healthy foods for yourself and your family throughout your entire life. WIC requires that clients have one or more documented nutritional risks and incomes less than or equal to 185% of the poverty level.
