WIC is the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. It is administered in Illinois by the Department of Human Services (DHS) and is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Even if you or your family members are working, it can be hard making ends meet. The WIC Program may be able to help with the right food and advice on nutrition, health care and immunizations. WIC enables parents to feed their children properly during critical periods of growth and development. The combination of nutrition education, nutritious foods and access to other health services strengthens families long after their WIC eligibility has ended. WIC is a federal nutrition program that provides nutrition education, counseling and support, breastfeeding support, nutritious foods, health screenings, and referrals to other services.
