WIC Can Serve More Women and Children in Alabama
Alabama families may qualify for the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, better known as WIC. If you are a pregnant or breastfeeding woman or the parent or guardian of a child up to age 5, you are invited and encouraged to apply for WIC at your local county health department.
