SD Health Department Issues New WIC Guidelines



Bookmark and Share

The South Dakota Department of Health has released new WIC Program income guidelines.


The U.S. Department of Agriculture-funded special supplemental nutrition program provides food at no cost to eligible moms, babies and children.


The new guidelines are based on 185 percent of the federal poverty level. That means $21,257 for a single person or $43,568 for a family of four.


The WIC Program's goal is to help improve health by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets, offering education on healthy eating, nutrition and breastfeeding, and making referrals to other services.
