  • Have children under 5 years old including those cared for by a grandparent, foster parent, and dads!
  • Are pregnant, breastfeeding, or just had a baby.    
  • Have a family income within WIC Guidelines:*

WIC income eligibility is related to family size. When a mother is pregnant the unborn child is included in the family unit size.  Both families receiving public assistance and working families may qualify for WIC so it is important to review the income guidelines.
