What is WIC?
WIC is a special supplemental food program that provides nutrition support, breastfeeding support, and referrals to other agencies. To apply for WIC one must be pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a child under the age of 5. The applicant must also have a nutritional risk and meet income guidelines. Current guidelines are set at 185% of the federal poverty guidelines.
WIC applicants can visit the clinic in their community to enroll in the program. Once enrolled, participants will pick up WIC benefits at their local clinic. Please call your local clinic to schedule an appointment. Proof of income, identification, and proof of residency must accompany individuals at their scheduled appointment. At the appointment an applicant will receive nutrition support and learn about other services they can use to help their family.
