WIC Facts & Figures

policy and advocacy icon

Since 1974, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) has supported low-income women, infants, and children up to age five at nutritional risk through food prescriptions, breastfeeding support, nutrition counseling, and referrals to health and social services. WIC enhances families’ purchasing power and reduces healthcare costs by preventing birth complications and childhood illnesses.
