Service Goals 

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) improves the lifelong health and nutrition of pregnant women, new mothers (breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding), infants, and children under the age of 5, by providing nutrition education, nutrient-rich supplemental food, and health and social service referrals.

Services Provided 

WIC is a supplemental food and nutrition education program for Women, Infants and Children. WIC helps because it provides:
  • Healthy foods
  • Nutrition education to help families eat better and save money on food
  • Breastfeeding information and support
  • Referrals to healthcare, immunizations, and community services
