WIC is a program that provides nutritious foods such as milk, cheese, eggs, cereal, juice and infant formula at no cost for families with pregnant women or young children. They also receive nutrition advice from trained professionals and referrals for health care. Many working families participate in WIC. Those on Medicaid, or with a gross income less than the guidelines are income eligible.
