Information about WIC for Clients

Women, infants and children living in Pennsylvania, who are at medical or nutritional risk, and who meet WIC income guidelines may apply for WIC benefits. Fathers of children under the age of 5 are encouraged to enroll their children in the WIC Program. Just like any other parent or guardian, fathers may bring their children to appointments, attend nutrition counseling sessions, and cash food vouchers for their children. Grandparents and foster parents who have custody of grandchildren or children under the age of 5 may apply on their behalf.
