Health Dept. offers food assistance during public health crisis

The Vermont Department of Health is reminding people that the Women, Infants and Children program, known as WIC, is available to all eligible families affected by COVID-19.
WIC services, including new enrollments, breastfeeding support, and nutrition education are being provided by phone to align with social distancing and “Stay Home, Stay Safe” guidance. If your income has been affected by recent events, and you are pregnant or have a child younger than 5 years old, WIC can help provide nutritious foods and resources to keep your growing family healthy.
The Health Department invites families to visit their website to apply for WIC services online and to learn more about WIC at or by texting VTWIC to 855-11. Completing the online application is the first step to enroll in WIC; final eligibility will be determined at your first WIC appointment.
Vermont WIC, a program of the Vermont Department of Health, provides healthy food, nutrition education, breastfeeding support, and family resources to more than 11,000 women, children, and families across Vermont. For additional food access resources, please visit:
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
