WIC (Women, Infant & Children) Program

          
Welcome to the Josephine County Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). WIC is a free nutrition education program that helps families identify healthy nutrition choices that work for them. 

 

Why WIC? 

 

 

*Women on WIC eat a healthier diet, have healthier babies and receive early prenatal care.

 

*Infants born to WIC mothers weigh more and have improved growth and development rates.

 

*Children on WIC eat foods with more iron and vitamin C, and visit their doctors regularly.

You are eligible for WIC if you meet ALL of the following criteria:

 

*Live in Oregon
