WIC

WIC

WIC is a supplemental nutrition program for women, infants and children. District 4 provides free benefits for eligible infants and children 1-5 years old, pregnant and postpartum women, and breastfeeding mothers.

WIC benefits individuals and families in need by increasing access to healthy foods, providing breastfeeding support, promoting low-risk births, and offering cost-savings to health care.

 Learn more about the WIC program.

Georgia eWIC

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.
