Women, Infants & Children (WIC)

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children is funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is operated through local health departments and satellite and mobile clinics in Virginia. WIC provides high-quality nutritional care and food to our participants. The program provides milk, cheese, eggs, juice, cereal, dried beans or peas, peanut butter and iron-fortified formula that supply crucial nutrients such as protein, iron, calcium, and vitamins A and C essential to maintain health. WIC provides breastfeeding education during pregnancy and breastfeeding support after delivery. Individual counseling and group classes on breastfeeding are available for clients. For breastfeeding questions and concerns Breastfeeding Peer Counselors are available during normal office hours. Learn about the benefits of breastfeeding.
