Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program

The WIC program provides nutritious supplemental foods and education for pregnant women, breastfeeding moms up to one year after delivery, infants age newborn up to one year of age and children ages 1 up to five who meet the following guidelines:

  • Live in Michigan 

  • Meet income guidelines.

  • Show a medical or nutritional risk. This can include anemia, overweight, underweight, an underlying chronic disease, pregnancy, inadequate growth or inadequate diet.

The Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency conducts WIC clinics on a regular weekly schedule. Breastfeeding support and dietitian counseling is provided and encouraged. A Nutrition Information Mall is available for clients in all of our sites, for convenience (quicker in and out) of Nutrition Education. During the summer months, as funding is made available, Project Fresh coupons are made available for fresh Michigan produce from local vendors to clients who meet eligibility requirements. 

Online WIC Nutrition Education (WIC Mall)

Additionally, clients who meet eligibility may also access the WIC nutrition education via the Internet.  Use the link above to access on-line WIC nutrition education if you have received authorization to do so.

For more information on the WIC program or to schedule an appointment for WIC, please contact the local agency office.
