MI WIC: Women, Infants and Children
WIC is a no-cost Supplemental Nutrition and Education Program.
Our goal in the WIC program is to improve health outcomes and quality of life for eligible women, infants and children by providing nutrition education, breastfeeding promotion and support, nutritious food, and referrals for health and other services.
As part of the WIC community, you can take advantage of any of the services we provide, including:
Food is only as good as the nutrients it provides. Through WIC, moms receive monthly benefits on an EBT card to buy healthy food.
We offer guidance on how to shop for healthy food, how to prepare it and how to entice children to eat it. We also offer free counseling with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN) for clients at high nutritional risk.
We guide and educate moms to help them successfully achieve their breastfeeding goals. We also offer free counseling with an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
WIC Project FRESH helps to provide WIC clients with eligible, locally grown, fresh, healthy and nutritious unprepared fruits and vegetables from authorized farmers, farmers' markets and roadside stands throughout Michigan.
...and a Community of Resources!
We can connect moms to additional resources, including healthcare professionals, immunization services, substance abuse counselors, domestic abuse counseling and social services.
