W.I.C. Can Help!

WIC (Women, Infant & Children) is a special supplemental and educational nutrition program available throughout America. WIC's mission is to safeguard the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk by providing health screenings, nutritious foods to supplement diets, education on breastfeeding and healthy eating, and referrals to health care. It is administered in Illinois by the Department of Human Services and funded by the United States Department of Agriculture.

Even if you or your family members are working it is often difficult to make ends meet. WIC can help! It targets the following low-income individuals who may be nutritionally at risk:

- Pregnant women (through pregnancy and up to 6 weeks after birth or after the pregnancy ends).
