WIC is the special supplemental nutrition program for pregnant women, mothers, and young children. Participants learn about nutrition and how to stay healthy, and receive benefits to purchase healthy foods. Services are free to those who are eligible.
The City is working to modify our operations and staffing due to COVID-19. The City’s goal is to maintain the health and safety of City employees and the community at large, while providing City services and maintaining social distancing.
As of March 17, 2020 WIC is closed to the public. Staff will be operating alternative service models for delivering food, online assistance, and distributing benefits. The public should either call 512-972-4942 or email WIC at Help@austintexas.gov if they need benefits or have questions.
