What do I need to qualify for WIC?

 

You  will need a height and weight measurement and a blood test for hemoglobin or hematocrit from a doctor (WIC referral form)


WIC helps because it provides:

  • Healthy food such as milk, eggs, cheese, cereal, juice, beans or peanut butter, formula

  • Nutrition education to help you and your family eat better and save money

  • Breastfeeding information and support

  • Healthcare referrals


Even working families may qualify for WIC.
