‚ÄčThe Shasta County WIC program helps pregnant women, new moms, and young children eat well, stay healthy, and be active. With WIC you receive:
  • Healthy, no cost 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. WIC is an equal opportunity provider.
