Description 

 

 

The WIC Program is a federally funded Nutrition Program for pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women, infants and children up to 5 years who meet Federal Income Standards (185% income guidelines) and are at nutritional risk.

WIC Provides:

Supplemental nutritious authorized WIC foods

Nutrition counseling and education

Breastfeeding information and help

Checks for infant formula, if not breastfeeding

Health Care referrals

Voter registration

Women and Children receive free nutritious food.

Non-breastfeeding mothers will receive iron fortified formula until the infant turns 1 year old. Exclusive breastfed infants will receive jars of baby fruits and vegetables and baby meats at age 6 months. 

 WIC also provides a monthly Cash Value Voucher (CVV) which allows fresh, canned and frozen fruits and vegetables. Women receive $11 per month and children receive $8 monthly.

WIC participants redeem their WIC checks and CVV at authorized vendors throughout the State of New Jersey.

Please call the WIC Program for an appointment. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
