WIC Nutritional Education

The Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) program is a nutrition program that helps single mothers or fathers, parents, step-parents, guardians, and foster parents of infants and children under the age of 5 with nutrition education, nutritious food, referrals to health and human services, breastfeeding support, and immunizations (at some clinics). Food benefits are issued for each client.
