  Women, Infants and Children (WIC)

WIC serves pregnant women, non-breastfeeding postpartum women (up to 6 months after delivery or termination of the pregnancy), breastfeeding women (up to 1 year after delivery as long as they are breastfeeding the baby), infants from birth up to 1 year of age, and children up to their 5th birthday.

The goal of WIC is to improve nutritional health of participants. To meet this goal, the WIC program provides nutrition education, breastfeeding promotion and support, medical care referrals and nutritious foods that are high in protein and iron.
