  • WIC provides nutrition tips, parenting support and connects you to resources in your community.
  • All families are welcome - including families with caregivers that are moms, dads, grandparents, kinship care and foster parents.
  • Children can stay on from birth until 5 years old.
  • Families can apply for WIC at any time.
