Women, Infants, & Children (WIC)


Important Updates:

  • Farmers Markets: Clay County WIC is participating in the Missouri WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program (WIC FMNP). WIC participants 4 months of age and older are eligible to receive $20 in benefits to be used for eligible foods at a farmers market or roadside stand with an authorized farmer. Eligible foods include fresh, unprocessed fruits and vegetables and fresh cut herbs. Benefits will be issued July through September 30, 2023 while supplies last. All benefits must be used by October 31, 2023.
  • Benefits Update: From January to September 2023, WIC benefits will be increased for fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. The new amounts will be $25 per month for child participants, $44 per month for pregnant and postpartum participants and $49 per month for breastfeeding participants. Learn more.
  • Discontinuing Similac for Spit-Up: Beginning January 1, 2023, Missouri WIC will issue Enfamil A.R. in place of Similac for Spit-Up. This move is due to Abbott discontinuing the production of Similac for Spit-Up. For participants who wish to continue using this type of formula, a doctor’s note (Medical Documentation Form WIC-27) will be required to issue Enfamil A.R. to your benefits. As benefits are currently being issued for January 2023, you may need to bring the doctor’s note to your next WIC appointment.


What is WIC?

Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is a special supplemental nutrition program which provides services like: 

  • Nutrition education and counseling
  • Free, supplemental food using an eWIC card
  • Health screenings and risk assessments
  • Breastfeeding support
  • Referrals to health care 

Who is WIC for?

Eligibility for WIC is based on nutritional risk and income eligibility. Only the following people may be eligible to receive WIC benefits and services:

Pregnant Women

You can apply for WIC as soon as you learn you are pregnant. 

Data shows that pregnant women who participate in the WIC program have fewer low birth weight babies, experience fewer infant deaths, see the doctor earlier in pregnancy and eat healthier.

Breastfeeding & Postpartum Women

Postpartum is up to six months after delivery.

Our WIC staff includes a breastfeeding peer counselor that teaches new and soon-to-be moms about breastfeeding and supports them through their journey.

Children up to 5 years old

Any type of legal guardian is able to apply on behalf of a child in this age range. This includes dads, moms, grandparents, foster parents and more.
