The Shasta County WIC program helps pregnant women, new moms, and young children eat well, stay healthy, and be active. With WIC you receive:
- Free, healthy foods
- Nutrition education for you and your family
- Referrals to community services
- Information and support for breastfeeding
WIC serves families with low to medium incomes, including many working families.
If you receive Medi-Cal, CalWORKs or CalFresh (Food Stamps), you could meet the income eligibility for WIC.
U.S. citizenship is not a requirement for receiving WIC. The non-cash benefits provided by WIC do not affect immigration status
