Program Description

WIC is a nutrition and breastfeeding program that helps young families eat well and be healthy.

WIC can help:

  • Pregnant women learn about nutritious foods for a healthy pregnancy and birth.
  • Support breastfeeding and help new moms meet their breastfeeding goals.
  • Families provide nutritious foods to their young children so they are healthy, happy and ready to learn.

WIC staff provides:

  • Information about nutrition during pregnancy, and about feeding your baby and young children.
  • Vouchers for a variety of healthy foods, including fruits and vegetables, milk, eggs, whole grain foods and more.
  • Information and referrals to other health and social services.
