WIC provides free healthy food and services to low-income women and children which include nutrition counseling, breastfeeding support, health education, and referrals to help families stay healthy. The food you are allowed to buy is listed on a check or voucher and must be used at stores that accept WIC.

To apply for WIC:

  • Find your local WIC agency, or call the Growing Up Healthy Hotline at 800-522-5006 and ask for the location nearest to you.
  • Gather your income, residency, and identity documents to bring with you.
  • Call the WIC agency where you wish to receive services and make an appointment.
  • A short nutrition assessment will be completed at the time of your appointment by a qualified WIC staff member.
