Good nutrition is very important for health, growth and development during pregnancy and the early years of life. The WIC Program is available to help families get the nutrition they need during these times. WIC is a nutrition program that provides nutrition information, supplemental foods and referrals to health and social services to eligible pregnant and postpartum women and children up to age five. To qualify for WIC, individuals must meet income eligibility guidelines and be determined to have a nutrition or health need by a WIC nutritionist. Once certified for WIC, participants receive benefits on a WIC EBT card for specific foods that they can redeem at any WIC approved store including milk, cheese, eggs, fruit juices, iron-fortified cereals, dried beans or peanut butter and iron-fortified formula for infants not breastfed. Fully or mostly breastfeeding mothers can receive an expanded food package. Support is available to help mothers with breastfeeding. WIC services are available at many sites throughout Marion County. Appointments can be made Monday-Friday. Several sites offer evening hours and walk in services. Same day appointments with preference given to prenatal and moms with new babies are available every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. WIC also has introduced a new mobile unit to better help moms on the go. See the mobile unit link at the bottom of this page for more details.
