Women, Infants, & Children (WIC)

WIC is a nutritional food program that helps participants eat well and stay healthy.  While it is named for women, infants, and children, others such as adoptive parents, fathers, grandparents, other family members, foster parents and some non-traditional custodial situations may also be eligible to receive WIC benefits for infants in their care.

Those who qualify receive a WIC Bridge Card used for purchasing healthy foods such as milk, 100% juice, eggs, cheese, cereal, peanut butter, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads or tortillas, dry or canned beans or peas, baby foods, infant formulas, and soy milk.  breastfeeding moms can also purchase canned tuna or salmon.  In addition to providing food, WIC offers tips and advice to help feed your family in a healthy way.
