  • Description
  • The Women, Infants, and Children Program, also known as WIC, is a federally funded nutrition education supplemental food program which provides services for pregnant, non-breastfeeding postpartum women (up to 6 months after delivery or termination of the pregnancy), breastfeeding women (up to 1 year after delivery as long as they are breastfeeding the baby), infants from birth up to 1 year of age, and children up to their 5th birthday. The program is designed to help mothers and young children eat well and stay healthy by providing health screening, risk assessment, nutrition education and counseling, breastfeeding promotion and referrals to health care as well as supplemental food items. To qualify, individuals must meet income guidelines and be at a nutritional or health risk. Qualifying participants will receive vouchers for food items such as milk, juice, peanut butter, eggs, canned and dried beans, cereal, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, infant formula and baby food. Food packages are prescribed according to the individual’s qualifying category. These food packages are to supplement the family’s food budget but will not provide enough food to support the WIC clients for the entire month.
