About the WIC Program

WIC (Women, Infants, and Children Supplemental Nutrition Program) provides food, nutrition counseling and referrals to help women from the beginning of their pregnancy to their child’s fifth birthday.

The WIC Program Offers Food Packages and Nutritional Counseling Services

WIC is often the entry point into the health care system for participants. Recent studies have shown that WIC participation reduces fetal deaths, infant deaths, low birth weights, and iron deficiency anemia. It also helps to increase immunization rates of children.

WIC is successful in improving the diet and protecting the health of participants by providing foods to help parents feed their children properly during critical periods of growth and development. WIC foods are high in protein, calcium, iron, vitamin A and vitamin C. The amount and types of foods offered are based on the participants category.

WIC provides:

  • Easy access to foods through use of an EBT card (Electronic Benefit Transfer) that is accepted at most large grocery stores as well as many local food stores.
  • Delicious foods like, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, cereals, milk, cheese, yogurt, peanut butter, and juice
  • Guidance for healthy eating
  • Breastfeeding education and support
  • Supplemental infant formula, for partially breastfed and non-breastfeeding infants.
  • Supplemental baby foods for all infants.
  • Help in finding healthcare and other services in your area.
