Mission
The WIC Program provides nutrition counseling, Breastfeeding support and information, supplemental foods, and referrals for needed services to eligible pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women, infants and children up to the age of 5 years.
Program Description
Eligible clients must meet income guidelines and must also have a nutritional or medical need, which is assessed by a health professional. Food packages are assigned according to individual needs and EBT benefits are issued at your WIC appointment. The EBT card has replaced the paper checks and the card contains the entire family's benefits. It saves time at the checkout.

WIC provides:
  • Breastfeeding support
  • Nutrition classes and individual counseling
  • Foods high in nutritional value
  • Referrals to health and social service providers.
Available to all eligible participants without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex or handicap.

WIC clinic sites are located throughout Indiana.

Other services offered:
  • Breastfeeding information and support is offerd to our WIC Moms.
