Fathers can also bring their children to apply for WIC. You may apply for WIC if you are working or unemployed. Check the Income Guidelines Table to see if you are eligible for WIC.

This place is disgusting and packed, there are hardly places to even sit. Do NOT waste your time coming here. The staff is very disorganized and inconsiderate. They should actually close this Wic location down.
