“I encourage my friends to get WIC.  At WIC, we talk about health, nutrition and I love getting information on how my child is growing!”

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) has helped Pennsylvania families since 1974! 

Through WIC, pregnant women, mothers, and caregivers of infants and young children learn about good nutrition to keep themselves and their families healthy.  WIC provides nutrition services, breastfeeding support, healthcare and social service referrals, and healthy foods to over 253,000 participants every month.

 

 

“I can’t believe all the extra foods I receive from WIC because I am breastfeeding my baby.  The WIC staff give me support and I don’t know what I would do without WIC!”
