WIC is here to help you and your family thrive and be healthy
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 parent with a child under five, WIC is right for you!

VERMONT WIC IS RESPONDING TO COVid-19
We continue to provide services that align with social distancing and we are committed to supporting families during this time. If you have opted in to email and text notifications, you will receive important program updates, including information about local office hours and changes in operations. Contact your local office with any questions about breastfeeding, nutrition or shopping and to opt in for email and text notifications if you are not already receiving them and would like to.
WIC appointments will continue to be held over the phone through September 30. Please see the Phone Appointments page for more information.
Temporary Food Changes
We know it has been challenging to shop and find some WIC foods so WIC has temporarily expanded our food list to add options for some hard to find items. Check the expanded food list to see what has been added. This expanded list of WIC foods will be available until September 30, 2020. We will continue to work with stores to ensure WIC infant formula is available. Please check at customer service if you are unable to find WIC formula on the shelves.
The Farm-to-Family Program gives WIC families a free coupon booklet worth $30 for locally grown, fresh vegetables and fruits from participating farmers’ markets to use during the summer. WIC receives a limited supply of coupons and we do not have any left for this year. Please contact your local Community Action Agency to see if they have coupons available.
