(WIC) Food Nutrition Service


The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children – better known as the WIC Program – serves to safeguard the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk by providing nutritional assessment and education, referrals to health care and nutritious foods to supplement diets.


Who is eligible?


  • Pregnant women (through pregnancy and up to 6 weeks after birth or after pregnancy ends).
  • Breastfeeding women (up to infant’s 1st birthday).
  • Nonbreastfeeding postpartum women (up to 6 months after the birth of an infant or after pregnancy ends).
  • Infants (up to 1st birthday). WIC serves 45 percent of all infants born in the United States.
  • Children from birth up to their fifth birthday (fathers, grandparents, foster parents or other guardians may apply for WIC for their children).


What are the eligibility requirements?


  • Must meet the income guidelines, which are set at or below 185% of the federal poverty income limit (WIC counts an unborn infant as a household member). 
  • Be at nutritional risk; WIC uses 2 broad categories of risk: medically based such as low birth weight and diet based, such as poor eating habits.
  • Must live in Connecticut (WIC does not require proof of citizenship or alien status and participation in WIC will not affect your immigration or naturalization status).
