WIC offers assistance with food expenses

Families and households in need of help with their monthly food expenses are reminded that a special nutrition program is available through the local county health department. The Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program provides supplemental foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding support and healthcare referrals to participants. WIC serves pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, infants and children to the age of five. WIC food packages offer a wide variety of nutritious foods to support growth and development. Income-eligible women and children may receive WIC benefits.   To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.
