WIC is the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). WIC is a federally funded nutrition program that provides nutrition education, breastfeeding support, healthy foods, and other services free of charge to Colorado families who qualify.
WIC is offered to all kinds of families: single and married parents, working and unemployed parents. If you are a father, mother, grandparent, foster parent or other legal guardian of a child under age 5, and you meet the qualifying criteria, you can apply for WIC.
