WIC provides supplemental nutrition for area mothers

WIC provides supplemental nutritious foods and education for women with children.

WIC, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, provides supplemental nutritious foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding promotion and support and referrals to health care and community resources. The WIC program is available at five Wake County Human Services locations in Zebulon, Fuquay-Varina, Wake Forest and Raleigh.

Applicants must be either a pregnant woman; a breastfeeding woman who has had a baby in the last 12 months; a woman who has had a baby in the last 6 months; an infant; or a child up to the fifth birthday. All applicants must also reside in North Carolina and in the health delivery area of the WIC agency; meet income guidelines (all Medicaid, Food and Nutrition Services and Work First recipients meet the WIC income eligibility criteria); and have an identified nutrition/medical risk factor. For more information about WIC or to make an appointment, visit any Wake County WIC service location, call 919-250-4720, or visit WakeGov.com/HumanServices. The N.C. Care-Line is available at 1-800-662-7030.
