Step-by-Step Process

  • We check to see if mom and/or child are eligible for WIC.
  • Mom and/or child have their weight, height and hemoglobin measured (just a quick finger stick).
  • WIC health professionals educate mom about good nutrition and healthy family eating.
  • If eligible, the WIC card will be issued.
  • Mom is informed of next WIC visit where she will learn more about good nutrition for the family.

What WIC Expects of You

  • Keep scheduled appointments

    - Call the WIC office if you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment.
  • Honesty - Always provide accurate information to the WIC staff. If you hide facts to get WIC benefits, you may be taken off the program.
