WIC Nutrition Program Now at Oak Hill Family Center | Print |

FREE Nutritional counseling, breastfeeding support and food vouchers among services for families with babies and young kids

The Women, Infants and Children’s nutrition program, known as WIC, has opened a new office and is now offering FREE nutritional support to low and moderate income families at the Fulton County Oak Hill Child, Adolescent and Family Center in southwest Atlanta.  

Beginning Tuesday, July 19, 2016 women and guardians with children under age five can apply to receive WIC services. ¬† The WIC program provides breastfeeding support, nutritional counseling and FREE vouchers for healthy food. ¬† These are three proven services that lead to improved health of infants and children. ¬† WIC services are available to pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers (up to one year) and for postpartum women (up to six months). The Oak Hill Family Center is located at 2805 Metropolitan Parkway, S.W., Atlanta, GA 30315 and open 8:30 a.m.-5:00 pm Monday ‚Äď Friday.

To determine eligibility, mothers and guardians must make an appointment by calling the WIC Office at 404-612-3942.  Interested WIC participants will need to complete the WIC application, provide identification and proof of address and income. For details on income eligibility requirements and to fill out an online intake form, visit www.dph.ga.gov/WIC.

‚ÄúAlthough WIC stands for Women, Infants and Children, we also welcome fathers, foster parents and other guardians to bring their infants and children for services,‚ÄĚ

explains Fulton County’s WIC Director Danica Carswell, M.S., R.D.  

 

WIC is a federally-funded program that has been helping families prevent nutritional deficiencies in children and improving the health, growth, and development of children for more than 30 years.
