  • About the Georgia WIC Program

    Georgia WIC is the nation's fifth-largest Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children. The Georgia Department of Public Health administers the program with federal funding provided by the Food and Nutrition Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

There are over 1,400 authorized vendors that are participating in the WIC food delivery system in Georgia. The Georgia WIC program has provided nutrition education and supplemental foods to low-income families for over thirty years.
