The program provides a combination of nutrition education, supplemental foods, breastfeeding promotion and support, and referrals for health care. WIC has proven to be effective in preventing and improving nutrition related health problems.
The Tennessee Department of Health provides the services in about 140 county health department locations and hospital sites throughout the state.
Participants must be residents of Tennessee, meet the gross income guidelines and be determined to be at nutritional or medical risk.
