Delaware WIC: Free food!

A federal program, WIC (”Women, Infants, and Children”) provides free food to low income families.  This excellent program has been funded for many years by the US Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition service.  Money is provided to states, who give infant formula and nutritious food to pregnant women and children who qualify.

A new program to improve the nutritional quality of food, and to further promote breastfeeding, has been put in place this year.  Delaware’s Department of Health and Human Services is one of the first states to implement the new program.
