You must live in Indiana and meet income guidelines. When you apply you will receive a personalized nutrition assessment to see if the program is right for you.

As a WIC applicant you will visit the clinic for a free visit to be enrolled and to pick up your checks. At the appointment you will receive nutrition support, and learn about other services you can use to help your family.

The checks can be used at local grocery stores for cereal, juice, milk, cheese, eggs, peanut butter, whole wheat bread, brown rice, tortillas, fresh and frozen fruit and vegetables, baby food and formula.

WIC encourages and supports Breastfeeding. Breast milk provides superior nutrition for baby growth and development. Breastfeeding saves money, Moms receive more nutritious foods from WIC and Moms receive mom to-mom support from our Peer Counselor.

The Gibson and Posey County WIC Program is administered by The Arc of Gibson County.
