Women, Infants and Children (WIC)

The WIC program helps safeguard the health of low- income pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to age 5, who are at nutritional risk.

WIC provides nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating (including breastfeeding support), and referrals to health care. Foods such as dairy products, fruits and vegetables, and infant formula are provided through grocery store vouchers.

Read the Champaign County Winter WIC Newsletter for information about staying active, flu, holiday safety, Cotton Bowl Diaper Drive, recipes, visiting our ofices and more.

WIC Farmers' Market Program

Every WIC participant is eligible to receive free summer farmers' market vouchers. Many of the local farmers' markets also give WIC clients double the value of their vouchers when they use them.

More produce is also available through the CUPHD Give Back Garden. For more information, see our CUPHD farmers' market pamphlet.
