WIC Nutrition

WIC is a supplemental food and nutrition/breastfeeding education program that helps pregnant women, new mothers, and young children to eat and live healthily. Clients receive nutrition and breastfeeding counseling, vouchers for nutritious foods, and assistance with referrals to needed services. Breast pumps are available on loan for breast-feeding moms.
