What is WIC? WIC (Women, Infant, and Children) provides healthy foods at NO COST for infants and children up to age 5, and women who are pregnant or who have just given birth. WIC teaches you and your family how to eat healthier and what you can do to stay healthy as your family grows. WIC provides referrals for health care and provides you and your family with nutritional education.
