Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program


MaineGeneral WIC provides many types of families with free nutrition advice, tips for staying healthy and recipes and resources.

We welcome you to be a part of our vision - a Maine where every child is healthy and never hungry.

What We Offer

We offer healthy foods as well as nutrition education, breastfeeding support and referral to other health care resources. We serve:
  • Women who are pregnant or are new mothers
  • Infants and children up to age five, including foster children.

Who Qualifies

There is no charge for WIC services and both working and non-working families may be eligible. You'd be surprised who qualifies.
  • You can have a job.
  • You can be single or married.
  • You can be living with your parents.
  • You can be unemployed.
  • You can be a student.
  • You can be a father with a child under the age of five.
  • You can be a foster parent with a child under the age of five.

Qualifying women, children under age 5 and foster children under age 5 who receive Medicaid (MaineCare), food stamps or TANF are automatically eligible for WIC regardless of household income.

MaineGeneral WIC receives funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and United Way of Kennebec Valley.

Up-to-date eligibility guidelines can be found by at Maine WIC Program.
