When you sign up for the WIC program, you are helping another family join the program. The more participants enrolled in the program, the stronger the program becomes. Joining the WIC program helps build your support system. If you choose to breastfeed, our team of breastfeeding Peer Counselors is there for support throughout your breastfeeding journey. Our Peer Counselors provide one-on-one support as well as facilitate support groups for moms to share experiences and best practices. Our breastfeeding peers and WIC staff can also provide you with breastfeeding pumps, supplies, and tools to make your feeding journey successful!
WIC is not an entitlement program- it’s a supplemental nutrition program for families. Our team of Registered Dietitians and Competent Nutritionists delivers individualized one-on-one nutrition counseling designed to help your family learn healthy lifestyles habits and meet nutrition needs.
Why stay on the WIC program?
Families receive an average of $60/month for each enrolled family member or an estimated $720/ year. Food Benefits can be used to purchase foods from all five food groups including formula or infant foods. Right now, you can receive additional benefits for fruits and vegetables minimum of $24 up to $47 for our breastfeeding moms.
Enrollment in WIC improves the growth of nutritionally at-risk infants and children, dietary intake of pregnant and post-partum women, and increases the likelihood children have a regular source of medical care and up to date immunizations.
