About the WIC Program

The federally funded Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides nutrition education, breastfeeding support, nutritious supplemental foods, and referrals to other social and health care services to pregnant, postpartum or breastfeeding women, to infants and to children up to the age of 5 that meet eligibility requirements for income, residency, and nutritional risk. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.

In July and August, the WIC Program will be getting the Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Cards. To switch to the EBT Cards, the WIC Program will be CLOSED on Thursday, July 30 from noon to close and on Friday, July 31 all day.

During the EBT Card transition, the WIC Program will be operating on a reduced schedule. A limited number of appointments will be available from August 3 to August 31.
