Indiana WIC program logoThe Special Supplemental Food and Nutrition Education for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is federally funded through the United States Department of Agriculture with oversight through the Indiana State Department of Health. WIC serves as the gateway to health care for many low-income women, infants, and children and is the premiere public health program in America.

The WIC Program provides nutrition education by a staff of dietitians and nurses and checks for specific food items at local grocery stores and for fresh fruits and vegetables at the Farmer's Market. The St. Joseph County WIC Program has a strong breastfeeding support program with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant on staff to serve as a resource to the WIC staff and community.
