To participate in the WIC program, you will be asked to provide proof of income, residency, proper identification, and recent medical information. Please be sure to bring your proof of income, proof of residency, identification and recent medical information (particularly height, weight and hemoglobin) to your first appointment.
Upon verification of eligibility, you will then visit with a WIC nutritionist to talk about your family’s diet. The nutritionist will provide educational resources and tips to help you in providing good nutrition for both yourself and your children. If you are a breastfeeding mother, you may also meet with a lactation consultant, who will provide information and assistance in meeting any breastfeeding challenges.
At the end of the appointment the nutritionist will provide WIC food vouchers for the purchase of approved foods at local grocery stores.
