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.

About Us

We help more than 6,867 women, infants and children through nutrition or breastfeeding education, referrals and healthy food. Participation in WIC results in lower rates of low birth-weight babies, fewer children at risk of anemia and less children above an ideal body weight for their age. The program also brings significant economic benefit, as participants spent more than $2.4 million in 2018 on healthy foods at local grocery stores and more than $45,000 paid to local farmers.
