WIC: Women, Infants and Children

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a program for eligible families with young children, or a woman who is pregnant or breastfeeding, to purchase more healthy foods and help young families eat well and be healthy.

A family of four, earning as much as $60,000 a year, may qualify for vouchers to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables and other healthy foods, at your neighborhood grocery store or many neighborhood farmer’s markets.

At a number of community-based locations, our caring staff is available to offer parenting tips around nutrition and child development, as well as breastfeeding support.
