The Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program, a crucial support system for pregnant individuals, breastfeeding mothers, recently delivered women, and children aged 0 to 5 years old, plays a vital role in ensuring the health and well-being of families. Bladen County Health and Human Services announced this week, recent developments in household income over the past year have opened up new opportunities for those who may not have qualified before.

WIC offers essential nutrition assistance, including healthy food, nutrition education, and support for mothers and young children. With a focus on promoting a healthy start in life, the program has been a lifeline for countless families.
