Our goal is to help our community raise healthy kids
The WIC program helps low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 by providing nutritious foods, information on healthy eating, and referrals to health care, including:
- nutritious food
- health screenings
- nutrition education
- breastfeeding support
How to Qualify for WIC
To qualify for WIC you must:
- Live in Oregon. You do not have to be a U.S. citizen to get WIC services.
- Be a woman who is pregnant or has just given birth, an infant or a child under 5 years old. Dads, guardians and foster parents can apply for WIC for their children.
- Meet income guidelines. If you are on OHP, SNAP or TANF, you automatically qualify for WIC.
- Have a nutritional need or risk.
COVID-19 Vaccine Information
If you are pregnant, have recently given birth or might become pregnant in the future, the CDC strongly recommends you get a COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccines are safe, and they reduce your chances of getting severe COVID-19. Plus, the antibodies you make may offer protection for your baby!
