Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is a supplemental nutrition program that serves to safeguard the health of income-eligible women, infants and children up to age five who are at nutritional risk.
This is an application for the Oklahoma Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). Completion of the application does not guarantee you will receive WIC benefits, but it will make it possible for the WIC program to contact you to complete the eligibility process over the phone rather than in person. This application requests that you upload documents such as identification, income information, and address. These can be photos of the documents.
More than 7.5 million people benefit from WIC each month. Services include: Nutrition education for families, referrals to various social service agencies, and issuance of food benefits that can be used at various grocery stores for health foods such as milk, cheese, eggs, fruits, vegetables, beans, peanut butter, infant foods and formula, juice and cereal.
Applicants must live in the state in which they apply and meet income guidelines. WIC is a program of the Food and Nutrition Service, a federal agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It is not an entitlement program, but rather a federal grant program for which Congress authorizes a specific amount of funds annually.
