WIC began in 1975 and is known to be a program that works because it is both efficient and cost effective. The Supplemental Nutrition Program is for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) younger then 5 years. WIC helps parents give their children a healthy start by investing in their future with nutrition education and healthy foods.

WIC is designed to provide families with the knowledge and resources to make healthy choices

about what they eat. It is this focus on good nutrition and the important role it plays in preventing

lifelong health and developmental problems that defines WIC’s mission.

WIC is a federal nutrition program that gives you:

-nutrition information, counseling and support

-breastfeeding information and support

-nutritious foods

-health screening

-referrals to other services
