About the WIC Program


WIC, the Women, Infants, and Children program, is a nutrition program that helps pregnant women, new mothers and young children eat well, learn about good nutrition and stay healthy.

WIC's goal is to help keep pregnant and breastfeeding women, new moms, and kids under age five healthy. To do this, we provide:
  • Nutrition information specific to you
  • Checks to buy free, healthy food
  • Tips for eating well to improve health
  • Referrals for medical and dental care, health insurance, childcare, housing, fuel assistance and other services that can help the entire family.
But that's not all! WIC also offers:
  • Immunization screening and referrals
  • Breastfeeding support and breastfeeding supplies such as manual and electric breastpumps.
  • Boy eating sandwich
  • Nutrition information on a variety of topics including:
    • Maintaining a healthy weight
    • Meal planning
    • Label reading
    • Picky eaters
    • Caring for a new baby
    • Shopping on a budget
