What is WIC?
WIC provides free nutritious foods and nutrition education to improve the health of participating families that include pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women, infants and children up to the age of 5 years.
All families are welcome—moms, dads, grandparents, kinship care and foster parents.
Good nutrition during pregnancy, after delivery and for young children is so important for good growth. Foods on WIC contain specific nutrients to promote good health. WIC provides eating tips, parenting support and referrals to other programs you are interested in.
