Do you have a child under age 5 years? Do you have a baby?  Are you pregnant or breastfeeding? WIC is a Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children up to age 5 years.   

 The WIC program has increased cash-value benefits for each active WIC participant to $35 per month through September 2021. This will enable clients to choose more fruits and vegetables at the grocery store.  

  

Individuals, who have been affected by job losses, or who do not have enough food in the home, can contact Pitt County Health Department at 252-902-2393 to see if they qualify for these services. If it is more convenient, individuals can visit the us online at www.nutritionnc.com and will be contacted by the WIC Program.
