What is WIC?
WIC is the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children. WIC helps income eligible pregnant and breastfeeding women, women who recently had a baby, infants, and children up to five years of age who are at health risk due to inadequate nutrition. The program improves pregnancy outcomes by providing or referring to support services necessary for full-term pregnancies; reduces infant mortality by reducing the incidence of low birth weight (infants under 5 ½ pounds are at greater risk of breathing problems, brain injuries and physical abnormalities), and provides infants and children with a healthy start in life by improving poor or inadequate diets. WIC provides nutrition education, breastfeeding education and support; supplemental, highly nutritious foods such as cereal, eggs, milk, whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables, and iron-fortified infant formula; and referral to prenatal and pediatric health care and other maternal and child health and human service programs (examples: Head Start, Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as Food Stamps).

How to report abuse of the program
Participant Abuse and Confidentiality
In the event that an applicant or participant becomes verbally or physically abusive to WIC staff resulting in a safety risk to either or both staff and other participants, law enforcement authorities may be called to resolve the issue. WIC confidentiality rules do not prohibit WIC staff from contacting law enforcement if applicants or participants become verbally or physically abusive.
In addition, if an applicant or participant is suspected of stealing either WIC program property or personal items from employees or other individuals in the clinic, law enforcement authorities may be called to resolve the issue. Only the minimum demographic information (name and contact information) should be provided to assist authorities in resolving the issue.
An applicant/participant who makes false or misleading statements; misrepresents, conceals, or withholds facts to obtain benefits; or fails to meet participant responsibilities is subject to specific sanctions based on program violations. State WIC and local projects must impose disqualifications, repayment of benefits, or take other actions depending upon the offense. When appropriate, State WIC must refer participants who violate program requirements to federal, state, or local authorities for prosecution under applicable laws.
