Due to the end of the COVID-19 Pandemic waivers coming to end on 7/31/23, WIC has experienced an increased call volume and an increased need for appointments. Staff are working hard to serve families both in the office and those calling with questions or needing to book an appointment. Please be patient with us as we work to serve all of those in need.
If you have been scheduled for a virtual appointment, please email all documents and height & weight measurements (less than 60 days old) to WIC@cabarrushealth.org with subject line as the mother/guardian’s last name.
Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a supplemental food and nutrition education program for pregnant, breast feeding and postpartum women, infants and children up to age five.
Some of the benefits offered by WIC are:
Healthy foods including fruits and vegetables.
Nutrition education to help clients make better choices about the food they eat. They also learn how nutrition and health work together.
Peer counselors to help provide breastfeeding support. We also have a breast feeding room, breast pumps, and supplies for our clients.
