Community Partner Resources

Community partners play a crucial role in spreading awareness for the WIC program and helping families get the healthy start they deserve. Through providing food benefits and nutrition services, WIC creates a world where children receive a diet that keeps them healthy and strong, leading to better long-term health outcomes.

The Importance of WIC

The WIC program supports the health of families between doctor visits.

WIC participants see benefits such as:

  1. Longer, safer pregnancies with fewer premature births and infant deaths
  2. Improved maternal health
  3. Improved dietary outcomes for infants and children
  4. Improved performance at school

Many people don’t realize they’re eligible for WIC benefits, so we need your help sharing this information with your community and throughout your networks. As a trusted advisor, it is important to inform your community of this program to help their families have a healthy start.
