The Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program is a supplemental nutrition program providing healthy food, breastfeeding support, and nutrition education. WIC is available to income eligible moms who are pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum along with dads, foster parents and grandparents, or any guardian of a child under 5 years old. SNAP and Head Start participants automatically qualify. Click here for more information on eligibility.
