Welcome to WIC
WIC is a Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. WIC serves pregnant women, women who have recently been pregnant, infants, and children up to their 5th birthday. Moms, dads, grandparents, foster parents, other caregivers, and guardians may apply for the children they are raising. Many working families, including military and migrant workers, as well as families that have private health insurance, are surprised to learn that they may qualify for WIC. WIC provides benefits for a variety of nutritious foods, nutrition education, support for breastfeeding, and referrals to other services in your community.
West Oakland Health Council provides the following services:
- Lactation Consultant on site
- Registered Dietician on site
- Breast Pump Rental Program
- Breast Friends Mommy Group meets 2x per month one at each site (Download Flyer Here)
The New WIC Card is Here!
The California Department of Public Health/WIC Division (CDPH/WIC) is excited to introduce the California WIC Card. The WIC Card will replace the current paper food checks and will provide an easier way to issue food benefits, as well as improve the shopping experience for WIC families and grocers.
