The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a 100 percent federally funded program that provides nutritious food (via prescriptive checks), individual counseling and nutrition education, breastfeeding promotion and support, and referrals to other needed services to at-risk, low-to-moderate income (up to 185 percent of the federal poverty level) women and children up to age five. The purpose of WIC is to prevent infant mortality, low birth weight and other poor birth outcomes, and to improve the nutrition and health of participants. Primary care physicians (PCPs) inform eligible members of the availability of WIC services during office visits. Refer to the Contacts section in the Provider Library for a listing of WIC office telephone numbers and addresses.
