We're here to help

WIC is a program for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding an infant, women who have just had a baby, and caregivers to infants and children up to 5 years of age. The WIC program provides free healthy foods, nutrition education and counseling, breastfeeding support, and referrals for health care and community services of eligible families.

Many working families are a part of WIC.

Things to consider for income and household size:

  • For a pregnant woman, each unborn baby counts as 1 extra person in the household size.
