  • Description
  • WIC is a federal nutrition program available to pregnant, postpartum, or breast feeding women, infants and children under age five. This federal program began right here in Kentucky as a pilot program in 1974. Kentucky continues to be a leader in WIC innovations. Last year we implemented an e-system which enables clients to receive nutritious foods from WIC approved stores through the use of an EBT card. Valuable nutrition and child development information is provided by a nutritionist or Registered Dietitian. FIT WIC classes are available for children and local fitness opportunities are promoted. There are federal income guidelines for participation in the WIC program, but the guidelines are quite generous. A family of 4 qualifies for WIC if their annual income is less than $43,568.
