Healthy food makes for healthy families… which makes our whole community healthier! That’s why Adelante Healthcare works with the federally-funded Women, Infants & Children (WIC) Program, to help keep pregnant and breastfeeding women and their children under age 5 healthy. WIC is a nutrition program that provides nutrition and health education, healthy food and other services free to Arizona families who qualify. The program is for all types of families: married and single parents, working or not. If you are a mother, father, grandparent, foster parent or other legal guardian of a child under 5, you can apply for WIC for your child. You can participate in WIC if you: Live in Arizona; Have a nutritional need (our WIC staff can help you determine this); Are pregnant or breastfeeding; Have an infant or child up to age 5

WIC stands for Women Infants & Children. This program is funded by USDA since 1974. WIC serves women who are pregnant, are breastfeeding an infant up to one year old plus infants and children up to the age of 5. You must live in Arizona and fall under certain income requirements. A family of four can make up to $40,793 (up to 185% FPG). Many of our participants have never needed services before but during these tough economic times have lost jobs, their savings and now need help to get them over the hump until they can get back on their feet. Moms that have master's degrees or families that once made six figures but lost everything in the down market are now coming to WIC. Qualifying children can be cared for by grandparents, single dads, aunts, uncles or other family members or foster parents (i.e. does not have to be birth mother or birth father).
