The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children is funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is available at every health department in Piedmont Health District. The Virginia WIC Program serves low-income pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women and children up to age five.
WIC provides high-quality nutritional care and food to our participants. The program provides milk, cheese, eggs, juice, cereal, dried beans or peas, peanut butter and iron-fortified formula that supply crucial nutrients such as protein, iron, calcium, and vitamins A and C essential to maintain health.
