Nutrition Education and Counseling
The Tri-County Community Action Agency Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program offers nutrition and breastfeeding education, support and advice and provides assistance for the purchase of healthy foods for eligible individuals and families.
Our staff of highly trained dietitians and lactation consultants are available in two locations to provide nutrition education and counseling services. Upon enrollment into the WIC program, we will complete a nutritional assessment for you and your family and offer education to mothers and their families on healthy eating. Breastfeeding and lactation support and education are available through the WIC program. Additionally, we provide our eligible clients with monthly food vouchers to purchase healthy foods including eggs, milk, cheese, peanut butter, beans, tuna, fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads, rice, iron fortified cereals, and juice. We will also provide you with community and/or health and dental referrals whenever needed.
The WIC program reinforces the importance of healthy eating and healthy lifestyle habits, and community involvement. Benefits are available to women who are pregnant, have recently given birth, and to children under the age of 5 whose household meets income eligibility guidelines.
