What is WIC? 

Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is a special supplemental nutrition program which provides services to pregnant women, new mothers, infants and children up to their fifth birthday based on nutritional risk and income eligibility. The primary services provided are health screening, risk assessment, nutrition education and counseling, breastfeeding support and referrals to health care. Supplemental food is provided at no cost to participants.

Past experience shows that pregnant women who participate in the WIC Program have fewer low birth weight babies, experience fewer infant deaths, see the doctor earlier in pregnancy and eat healthier.

In addition to appointments during our normal business hours, we offer walk-in hours on Mondays from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Walk-in WIC services are offered for mother and baby appointments only.
