Food Assistance for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)
WIC is a Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children. It serves to safeguard the health of low-income pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating including breastfeeding promotion and support, and referrals to health care.
The WIC recipe book was created by a cohort of 8 organizations to find creative ways to adapt the WIC foods to different cultural recipes.
The book is available in the following languages:
Information and Resources for families during infant formula shortage
Important facts about formula - English • Spanish • Arabic • Burmese • Polish • Urdu
Formula Resource Webpages: Illinois Department of Human Services and Greater Chicago Food Depository
WIC Informational Videos
To assist in providing WIC services to Afghan newcomers, our Midwest partners from Indiana WIC have graciously shared their Pashto and Dari videos to assist in breastfeeding and nutrition basics.
Please find various WIC fact sheets translated into a number of different languages.
