What is WIC?

WIC is a Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children.  It is administered in Illinois by the Department of Human Services (DHS) and is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The program provides nutrition education and counseling, breastfeeding support, and referrals to other services. The combination of nutrition education, nutritious foods, and yearly health care visits strengthens families long after their WIC eligibility has ended.

WIC supports every mother's choice to breastfeed.
