Description: Women, Infants & Children (WIC) is a federally-funded nutrition education program. WIC's mission is to increase awareness among postpartum and breastfeeding women and parents/caretakers of participants age 1-5 years of the need to balance food intake and daily physical activity, to promote increasing the intake of fruits and vegetables, and to increase awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding. The Mobile County Health Department's Office of Nutrition Services manages the WIC program in Mobile County. A total of 13,016 participants received WIC food instruments in Mobile County last year. That was a 7% increase in caseload over the previous year and resulted in an estimated $9,371,520 in WIC food dollars being spent in Mobile County. To see if you may qualify, you must: meet income guidelines; be a resident of Alabama; be seen by a health professional at the WIC clinic. At the WIC appointment, you will need to bring: proof of residency (a document with your street address on it, such as a lease or bill); proof of identity (a driver's license); proof of income (pay stubs OR you would be automatically income eligible if you are currently enrolled in TANF, Food Stamps or Medicaid, so bring proof of enrollment). At the appointment once the above is documented, you will be evaluated for a nutritional risk which is the other main qualifying factor in determining benefit eligibility for pregnant, postpartum, breastfeeding women, infants and children under 5.
