The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a federal nutrition education program conducted through the Ohio Department of Health. WIC provides supplemental foods which promote good health for pregnant, breastfeeding and post-partum women, infants and children up to age five.
Our mission is to assure healthy pregnancies, healthy birth outcomes, and healthy growth and development in our participants. We provide referrals to healthcare and critical social services.
WIC does not provide all the food you will need. WIC is just a supplemental program.
