Women, Infants, Children (WIC) Program

WIC currently serves over 4,000 clients each month between the Central, West, and North sites at People’s Health Centers. The program aims to improve the health of families in St. Louis and surrounding communities by offering nutrition and health education to pregnant and post-partum women. Families that participate in WIC also receive education about proper feeding practices for children under the age of five. WIC also promotes services in St. Louis by offering referrals to programs that WIC families find useful. Lastly, WIC sets excellent examples for food selection by supplying participants in the program with vouchers which are used to purchase nutritious foods.
