Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a supplemental food and nutrition education program for pregnant and breast feeding women. This includes women who just had a baby who are not breast feeding, and infants and children up to age five.
Some of the benefits offered by WIC are:
Healthy foods including fruits and vegetables.
Nutrition education to help clients make better choices about the food they eat. They also learn how nutrition and health work together.
Peer counselors to help provide breastfeeding support. We also have a breast feeding room, breast pumps, and supplies for our clients.
