WIC is a federally-funded nutrition program for Women, Infants, and Children. WIC provides the following at no cost: healthy foods, nutrition education and counseling, breastfeeding support, and referrals for health care and community services.

WIC is available to pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women; infants, and children under 5 years of age.  Fathers are welcomed to bring their children to apply for WIC.  Legal guardians and/or foster parents of children under the age of 5 may apply for WIC services on behalf of their child.


How do I apply for WIC?
