What is WIC?
WIC is a free of charge - friendly - health and nutrition program that provides healthy food and nutrition information for pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, infants and children under the age of five. Foster children under the age of five are automatically eligible for WIC.
Who is WIC For?
WIC is for all kinds of families: married and single parents, working or not working. If you are a father, mother, grandparent, foster parent or other legal guardian of a child under 5, you can apply for WIC for your child. Also because WIC recognizes the important role that fathers, grandparents, stepparents, and other guardians play in caring for kids, WIC encourages them all to enroll and bring kids to appointments, attend nutrition and health workshops, and use WIC checks in WIC designated grocery stores.
