Do I qualify for WIC? 

WIC serves low income pregnant and breastfeeding women and parents raising infants or children under the age of 5 years. Foster parents, guardians and single fathers who have custody of their children can also get WIC. 

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. Children under 5 years of age who are cared for by a single father, grandparent, foster parent, step-parent or guardian may be eligible for the program as well. WIC provides breastfeeding promotion and support, nutrition tips, checks to buy healthy foods and some formula, and referrals to health care and community services.

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!
