What is WIC?

WIC offers support to anyone – working or not – who cares for a child. This includes moms, dads, foster parents, guardians, pregnant women, grandparents, & step-parents.

Together with our partners at the Geary County Health Department, WIC provides an electronic benefit card to spend on healthy foods plus nutrition & health education, breastfeeding support and many other support services for income-eligible women who are pregnant or postpartum, infants, and children up to age five.

If you currently receive Medicaid, SNAP, or TANF you automatically qualify for WIC.
