About WIC

Food. Education. Support.

WIC is a special supplemental nutrition program that helps families feed their children healthy foods. WIC (Women Infants, & Children) has been helping families by providing healthy foods, nutrition education, and referrals to other health care agencies since 1974.

WIC provides nutrition information, healthy foods, and helps access health care for moderate to low-income families. WIC gives you resources, knowledge, and tools to help you and support your family. It’s free for moms, dads, grandparents, foster parents and all families who qualify. Whether you’re pregnant, already a mom, or raising a child younger than 5, you can get the right personalized support for you and your family.
