The E Center Women, Infants and Children Program (WIC) released its August 2022 appointment scheduling notice. The nationwide, federally sponsored WIC nutrition program provides nutrition education, support and help with breastfeeding, community and healthcare referrals, and supplemental food benefits to eligible pregnant women, new moms, postpartum women, infants, and children under the age of five. WIC encourages enrollment of migrants and eligible women in the early months of pregnancy. Single fathers, foster parents and guardians of children under age five are also eligible to enroll their children. Formula supplementation is available for infants. The food packages include fruits, vegetables, eggs, cheese, milk, cereal, juice, whole grains, and beans or peanut butter. This non-profit program has generous income guidelines. For example, a family of four can have a yearly gross income of $51,338 or monthly income of up to $4,279 and still be eligible for the health benefits of the WIC program.
Due to COVID-19, WIC is doing appointments by phone in efforts to keep our families and staff safe and healthy. WIC families also have the option to complete their appointment online, via video, or in person as needed.
Due to the formula shortage, WIC has Temporary Options for Powdered Infant Formula.
California WIC now has over 100 different baby formula options to purchase with the California WIC Card! WIC has added as many options as possible to increase the chance families can find formula in stores.
