WIC is a program for pregnant women, women who have had a baby in the last six months, women who are breastfeeding up to one year, and children under five.

You may be eligible for WIC even if you do not meet the requirements for food stamps or other programs. However a person who currently receives Medicaid, Work First, or Food and Nutrition Services (Food Stamps) automatically meets the income eligibility guidelines for WIC.
