WIC is here to help you and your family be healthy and thrive. WIC is the USDA Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. WIC gives you access to healthy foods, nutrition education and counseling, and breastfeeding support. If you’re pregnant, a caregiver, or a mom with a child under five, WIC is right for you!
WIC welcomes families at any time. Check out WIC's prescreening tool to see if you and your child are eligible, and learn more about WIC benefits, how to apply, and how to eat well with WIC. Fathers, grandparents and foster parents may apply for children who are in their care. Contact the Local Health Office serving your community and schedule an in-person WIC appointment to apply. Help spread the word about the benefits of participating in WIC: refer a friend to WIC today!
When you choose WIC for your family, you get the personalized support you need during critical periods of growth and development. WIC has the resources, know-how and tools to help you be the mom you want to be and to give your child the best possible start in life. Stick with WIC until age 5, and set your child up for success!
WIC IS OPEN!
Despite the partial Federal government shutdown, WIC clinics are open and your WIC food benefits are available. Please keep your WIC appointments and planned WIC nutrition activities. Your WIC food purchases for January are being processed normally, and food benefits will be issued as usual for February and March. Any newly eligible family is encouraged to enroll.
