The Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program is a special nutrition program that provides nutritional education, food supplements, and referrals to health care providers to eligible women, infants, and children. WIC helps eligible pregnant, breastfeeding or postpartum women, as well as infants and children up to age five.

At least once a year, the WIC program hosts farmers markets to provide fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables to WIC participants. Produce at the farmers market is provided at no cost to WIC clients who present a WIC ID card at the market. The market will remain open on the scheduled days and times until produce runs out.

All WIC services are free of charge. WIC can provide special checks to buy healthy foods from WIC-authorized vendors (such as milk, eggs, bread, cereal, juice, peanut butter, and more), information about nutrition and health to help you and your family eat well and be healthy, support and information about breastfeeding your baby, and help in finding health care and other community services.

To find out if you are eligible for WIC please call (toll-free) 1-855-262-7670. or go to gachd.org/wic and complete the WIC Eligibility Assessment.

WIC is an equal opportunity provider.
