WIC is the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. It is intended to help low-income families receive nutrition and breastfeeding education and support and connections to health service resources. The WIC Program also provides participants with individually tailored healthy food vouchers that can be used at thousands of stores.
Visit our WIC section for more information about this program.

Georgia eWIC, a new electronic system for issuing food benefits through the Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) program has officially launched in District 4 Georgia Department of Public Health.
Currently, WIC participants use paper vouchers to purchase approved foods. The new system allows participants to use an eWIC card, which functions like a debit card, to purchase WIC-approved foods!
A phased approach will be used to distribute the new cards during roll out, so if you are part of the WIC program, you can continue to use paper vouchers until you receive an eWIC card this fall.
