friendshelpingfriends started this conversation

Women, Infants & Children (WIC) is a supplemental nutrition program for pregnant women, breastfeeding women, women who had a baby within the last six months, infants, and children under the age of five. One must meet income requirements and have a nutritional risk that proper nutrition could help to improve.

To see if you may qualify, you must

  • meet income guidelines
  • be a resident of Alabama
  • be seen by a health professional at the WIC clinic

If you think you may qualify, please call your county health department to make an appointment.

At the WIC appointment, you will need to bring

  • proof of residency (a document with your street address on it, such as a lease or bill)
  • proof of identity (a driver's license)
  • proof of income (pay stubs OR you would be automatically income eligible if you are currently enrolled in TANF, Food Stamps or Medicaid, so bring proof of enrollment)

At the appointment once the above is documented, you will be evaluated for a nutritional risk which is the other main qualifying factor in determining benefit eligibility for pregnant, postpartum, breastfeeding women, infants and children under 5.

Call 1-888-942-4673 to obtain further information.
