WIC Helps Save Lives: Future and Present

The Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program is federally funded to provide food supplement and nutrition education. It serves pregnant and breast feeding women and children from zero to five years old who are at risk of receiving inadequate nutrition. This Cuyahoga County program operates at 22 sites. Over 35,000 individuals participate in the program. WIC has been known to improve pregnancy outcomes by providing or referring to support services during pregnancies. It also reduces infant mortality by reducing the occurrence of low birth weight infants. This program is important because babies born below 5.2 pounds are at a greater risk to have breathing problems, brain injuries and physical abnormalities. In addition to being pregnant, recently pregnant or a child under the age of five, individuals must be at 185% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines and reside in or receive medical care in Cuyahoga County to be eligible for WIC. The WIC Program Administrative Offices are located at:

MetroHealth Center for Community Health

Cleveland, OH 44144
Phone: (216) 957-9421
Fax: (216) 957-9422
