Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)

WIC is a federally funded nutrition program for Women, Infants, and Children. WIC provides healthy foods, nutrition education and counseling, breastfeeding support, and referrals for health care and community services at no cost. WIC provides eligible families with WIC EBT, which can be used to purchase WIC approved foods at authorized WIC grocery stores.

Feeding Tampa Bay is unable to assist with WIC applications. Please contact your local WIC office directly with any questions or interest in applying.
