About This Program

WIC stands for Women, Infants, and Children. It is a free nutrition program for Massachusetts families that provides healthy foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding support, and referrals to healthcare and other services.  WIC’s goal is to keep pregnant and breastfeeding women, and children under age 5 healthy. WIC is a unique program, which provides links to health and social service agencies, as well as food and nutrition services, to low to moderate income people in critical stages of growth and development.

Participants must live in Massachusetts, have a household income at or below 185% federal poverty level, have at least one of the medical or dietary conditions listed in the WIC nutrition risk criteria, and be either pregnant, breastfeeding (up to one year post partum), breast feeding and using formula for their infant (0-11 months old) and have children under the age of five years old.
