What is WIC?
WIC is the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. In Illinois it is administered by the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) and is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Even if you or your family members are working, it can be hard to make ends meet. WIC can help with the right food and advice from trained staff on nutrition, health care, and immunizations.
WIC strives to improve the health of participants by providing coupons for nutritious foods, nutrition education and counseling, and providing referrals to other Health and Social Service Agencies.
