WIC serves low-income pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, and infants and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk.

Who is Eligible

Pregnant or postpartum women, infants, and children up to age 5 are eligible. They must meet income guidelines, a State residency requirement, and be individually determined to at “nutrition risk” by a WIC staff or health care professional.

What food benefits do WIC participants receive?
