How this works

WIC benefits provide you and your child with one-on-one nutrition counseling, referrals with services you may need, and a food prescription to meet your needs, and your child's specific needs. As long as you are in the WIC program, we will meet with you to celebrate the steps in your child's growth and learning. Women who apply early in their pregnancy are more likely to have a healthy baby. Children who stay on WIC until the age of five, are better prepared and more likely to succeed in school.

Who we help

Eligible women who are pregnant, breastfeeding a child under one year old and postpartum women who delivered a baby within six months, children birth to five years old and their caregivers (moms, dads, grandparents, foster parents, or guardians) whose household meets income guidelines.

Cost

No out-of-pocket costs to WIC participants
