Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides nutritious foods, nutrition education, and referrals to community services for low-income pregnant and post-partum women and their children under five years of age. Breastfeeding support is available.

If your annual gross (before tax) income is at or below the amount listed for your family size, then you may qualify for WIC assistance.
