WIC is a free program for low-income pregnant women, low-income breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding women who have recently given birth, and infants and children up to age five that are at risk for not getting proper nutrition. It offers nutrition education, breastfeeding support, health care referrals, and supplemental food. WIC helps families eat well and stay healthy.
WIC provides access to free dietary guidance, free breastfeeding support, free nutritious foods, referrals to health care services, and up to $250 in savings on monthly groceries! During your first visit, staff will explain how the program works. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have an infant or child under 5 (including dads, grandparents, or foster parents with custody) you may qualify!
WIC clients can meet with on-staff registered dieticians or nurses to get evidence-based nutrition advice for healthy living. WIC also provides special benefits for breastfeeding moms and babies. Breastfeeding moms are eligible for free breast pumps.
Free nutritious food items provided through WIC include milk, cheese, eggs, yogurt, boxed cereal, peanut butter, beans, whole grains (bread, tortillas), juice, baby food/ baby cereal and fresh fruits and vegetables. Learn more about the Michigan WIC program here.
