The WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) Supplemental Nutrition Program has been helping low-income families for 40 years. More than half of all infants in the U.S. are served by the program.
Fruit and vegetable checks help parents choose fresh, local, healthy food. They can be redeemed at participating grocery stores, farmstands, and farmers’ markets. Yes, Pietree is delighted to accept WIC fruit and vegetable checks!
The WIC program works. Participating in the WIC program:
- improves nutrition,
- reduces food insecurity,
- reduces childhood obesity,
- reduces Medicaid dental costs, and
- teach healthy eating habits.
WIC works and has been working for two generations.
