WIC is a nutrition education and supplemental food program for Women, Infants, and Children. The mission of the program is to improve pregnancy outcomes by providing or referring to support services necessary for full-term pregnancies; reduce infant mortality by reducing the incidence of low birth weight (infants under 5 ½ pounds are at greater risk of breathing problems, brain injuries, and physical abnormalities) and provide infants and children with a healthy start in life by improving poor or inadequate diets. The Ohio WIC program is administered by the Ohio Department of Health. To participate in WIC individuals must meet income guidelines. Furthermore, many working families qualify to receive WIC benefits. Keep in mind, WIC is not a welfare program. Appointments and walk ins are welcome and are coordinated to meet the needs of all family members. Every three months participants receive food benefits that are loaded onto a WIC Nutrition Card, which is used at grocery stores. To see if you and your family are eligible, please check out our income eligibility at Ohio WIC Eligibility. For more information on the WIC program see the National WIC Program, the Ohio WIC Program or the Directory of WIC Clinics.
