Program Description

The Washington Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a public health nutrition program that helps pregnant women, new mothers, and young children eat well, learn about nutrition and stay healthy. WIC provides you with monthly checks for up to $100 worth of healthy foods when two people in your family enroll in the program. Each person gets checks for up to $50 worth of healthy foods. The program also provides nutrition tips and breastfeeding support. Many WIC clients are from working families or families in the military. And, getting WIC does not affect your immigration status. The Washington State Department of Health administers the program.

Program Requirements

To qualify you must be a resident of the state of Washington; a pregnant, breastfeeding and/or postpartum woman; or an infant or child under age 5.
