The goal of WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) program is to give our children the best possible start in life. This is done by providing nutrition education, breast-feeding support, healthy foods, and health care referrals during the critical stages of fetal and childhood development. It is a nutrition education and supplement program for pregnant, and postpartum women, infants, and children up to five years of age.
