Women, Infants and Children (WIC)


Need help buying food?  WIC is here to help!
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children - better known as the WIC Program - serves to safeguard the health of low-income pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating including breastfeeding promotion and support, and referrals to health care.
WIC is a Federal grant program for which Congress authorizes a specific amount of funding each
year for program operations. The Food and Nutrition Service, which administers the program at the
Federal level, provides these funds to WIC State agencies (State health departments or comparable
agencies) to pay for WIC foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding promotion and support, and
administrative costs.
Current WIC participants can visit WIC Health Online for free nutrition classes!
