WIC Program
WIC Program event displayWIC stands for the Special Supplemental Food Program for Pregnant and Breastfeeding Women, Infants, and Children. The purpose of the program is to provide supplemental foods and nutrition education to eligible persons. The program will also serve as an adjunct to good health care by promoting healthy outcomes of pregnancy, improved eating habits, and improved health of women, infants, and children. Find a WIC site.

The WIC Program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A). The WIC program not only provides nutritious foods such as cheese, peanut butter, beans, milk and infant formula but also provides nutrition education and referrals to other health care systems.
