Applying for WIC

To apply for WIC, just call a local WIC office and make an appointment. At the appointment, the client will be weighed, measured, and have an iron screening. The client will then speak with a nutritionist for suggestions on eating healthy and will be given any referrals that they may need. The nutritionist will provide a food prescription along with checks for healthy foods. Fathers, grandparents, and foster parents can also apply for WIC to receive supplemental nutrition benefits for infants and children who are five years old or younger in their care.

If the appointment is for a child, the child will have to go to the appointment with the parent or guardian. At this time, the child will be screened for iron in the blood and growth development.
