What We Do
This supplemental food program focuses on helping women make healthy choices for themselves and their families. We offer individualized nutrition education and provide referrals to other programs within the community. We also offer breastfeeding information, support and referrals.
Our staff can help with a variety of topics, including meal planning, maintaining a healthy weight, picky eaters, learning your baby's cues, working and breastfeeding, and shopping on a budget.
WIC is for all kinds of families: married and single parents, working or not working. If you are a father, mother, grandparent, foster parent or other legal guardian of a child younger than 5 years old, you can apply for WIC. We provide those who qualify with eWIC debit cards to buy free, nutritious foods to help with grocery bills. On average, families receive $62 in benefits per month.
WIC has two locations in Mesa County - Grand Junction and Fruita.
