WIC Program

WIC is a nutrition program that helps pregnant women, new mothers, and young children eat well, learn about nutrition, and stay healthy.

 Like many programs, WIC has been dramatically affected by the response to COVID-19. Utahns Against Hunger has been monitoring how benefits, access to services, and eligibility have changed during the pandemic response, and will be tracking those changes here:

WIC and Pandemic Unemployment Supplements: The $600 weekly supplements to unemployment insurance do not count as income for the purpose of WIC eligibility. Those households receiving this supplement who would otherwise be eligible for WIC participation should still apply, even though other benefits may be affected.

Clinic Access and Food Substitions: Utah WIC clinics are offering as many remote services as are possible during the crisis. Some WIC foods may be substituted in the event that the listed WIC food products are unavailable. Check this list for more information.

To apply and qualify for WIC benefits, you must reside in Utah, provide valid identification and meet the income guidelines (below). You must call a WIC office to apply.
