The Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program provides nutritious food and health care, as well as nutrition education. WIC is for pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, as well as infants and children ages 5 and younger. Our goal is to help our community raise healthy kids.
WIC benefits are now issued on an eWIC card that is easy to use and works like a debit card. This reduces the stigma of using WIC in the check-out line. WIC is convenient and easy to access.
